Apple Steve Jobs: Held for Possesion On Ninja Stars?

At times over recent months, Apple, one of the largest technological giants of today have enjoyed positive feedback as well as criticism. News from just a short time ago has reported that Apple’s Chief Executive Officer “Steve Jobs” had been stopped in July at the Kansai International Airport near Osaka with the possession of “Ninja Throwing Stars”.

When Alexia Tsotsis at TechCrunch looked into this, the reports which have come from different sources including over 10,000 tweets on Twitter indicated that Jobs was stopped after boarding his own private jet! It seems that Apple have commented on this giving an official statement saying that “Steve did visit Japan this summer for a vacation in Kyoto, but the incidents described at the airport are pure fiction. Steve had a great time and hopes to visit Japan again soon.”

A spokesperson for Kansai International Airport has said that there was some truth behind a person being stopped for carrying ninja stars in their luggage whilst boarding a plane. Due to airport security procedures surrounding passengers and the use of private jets, the person in question was asked to throw the stars away.
