SPA Magazine: Steve Jobs Stopped at Japan Airport Over Ninja Stars


Apple Inc. Chief Executive Officer Steve Jobs said he’ll never come back to Japan after officials at an airport barred him from taking Ninja throwing stars aboard his private plane, SPA! magazine reported in its latest issue. […]

Jobs said it wouldn’t make sense for a person to try to hijack his own plane, according to the report. He then told officials he would never visit Japan again, the magazine reported.

I wonder if they were gifts for Larry Ellison?

Update: Apple, in an official response, says Jobs did visit Kyoto in July, “but the incidents described at the airport are pure fiction.”
