By Leonard Boasberg After Steve Jobs, with his usual hypismo, introduced Apple's phenomenal new iPad to an eagerly awaiting world, hordes of fans swarmed to Apple stores. According to the company, more than 300,000 iPads were snatched up on the first day of sales. Since then, the number has reached three million. This ultra-advanced gadget can do everything except wash windows and take out the garbage. It streams videos. It browses the Web. You can use it to telephone your friends, download movies, listen to music, watch ball games, play video games, and read e-books.

ORANGUTANS, it turns out, love the iPad and its games just as much as some humans do. A budding program at the Milwaukee County Zoo is working to place iPads into the giant, gentle palms of its orangutans. Two of the zoo's orangutans already look forward to weekly sessions with an iPad. They even have favorite apps, shows and games, but they haven't yet been given free rein with the Apple device because keepers worry they might get frustrated and simply snap one in half. "One of the biggest hurdles we face is that an orangutan can snap an iPad like you or I could rip cardboard," said Richard Zimmerman, executive director of Orangutan Outreach, which hopes to extend Milwaukee's iPad enrichment program to zoos around the country.

The shoppers who lined up Saturday to inspect Apple's latest i-invention envisioned a device that would help cut back on recycling, give a courtroom lawyer an edge, and bring a husband and wife closer together.

PALO ALTO, CALIF. - An iPad stolen from the home of the late Steve Jobs ended up in the hands of a professional clown who said Friday that he had no idea it was pilfered from the Apple co-founder's house. Kenneth Kahn, also known as Kenny the Clown, said he unwittingly received the stolen tablet from a friend who was later arrested for breaking into the Jobs residence in Palo Alto, the San Jose Mercury News reported Friday. "It would be like getting a football from Joe Montana that was stolen out of his house," Kahn said.

After months of speculation and rumor, Apple jumped into the small-tablet market Tuesday with the iPad Mini, a downsized addition to its line of iPads that in less than three years has spawned an entirely new consumer niche. Apple CEO Tim Cook took to the stage at San Jose's restored California Theatre, where Steve Jobs once shared the spotlight with Bono to unveil new iPods. Although Cook led off with other impressive advances in Apple's product lineup, the iPad Mini was clearly the star of the show: a 7.9-inch iPad small enough and light enough to fit into a hand.

WHO'S GOING to buy a new iPad? The market is saturated! Cheaper tablets do the same things! Gizmo Guy was laughing and wincing over such "expert" scoffings as he plunked down big bucks for a new iPad Air 2 last weekend. The tablet supplants my first-generation iPad, bought way back when . . . in 2010. Truth is, I wasn't hankering for an upgrade to the half-pound lighter (and trimmer) newbie. Circumstances pushed me into a corner, with no choice but to buy or bail on the increasingly integrated "family" of Apple products and services that rule my roost.

The breakfast bustle is in full swing at Conshohocken Cafe and the waitresses bounce from table to table - chatting, refilling coffee, clearing plates. When they step into the kitchen, it's only to fetch orders, not put them in. In fact, you won't even find pads and pens at the cafe. Staffers key in orders on iPods and iPads linked to the kitchen through the cafe's WiFi network. SEE VIDEO Meanwhile, from anywhere in the world, the owners use their iPads to monitor the operation - seeing which tables are turning over when, and noting that, say, cheese omelets are the day's best seller.

SALEM, Ore. - Oregon was first in the nation to have all residents vote by mail. Now it's pioneering another idea: Vote by iPad. Voters in five counties are filling out and returning their mail-in ballots for a Tuesday special primary election to replace former U.S. Rep. David Wu, who resigned after a sex scandal. A handful will mark their ballots not with a pen but with the tip of their finger. It's the latest attempt at using new technology to help voters with disabilities cast ballots privately.

Q: I recently took a seven­day trip to the national parks in the Florida Keys with Road Scholar. Travel insurance was included in the price of the trip. Road Scholar contracted out the trip to a tour operator in Orlando, which provided the vans and tour guides. On the last stop of our trip before heading to Miami airport, at Biscayne National Park in Homestead, we were advised by our guides that it was OK to leave our carry­ons in the vans. When we returned to our van, it had been broken into, and several of us had lost our bags.

Can a sweet treat and tech savvy combine to boost profits? Cinnabon thinks so.

Here's the hook: When it opens in October, it'll be one of the first in the Cinnabon chain to feature the Revel Systems iPad POS. By using an iPad interface, a customer has different ways to pay for an order - by cash, credit card, or Apple Pay - and can easily sign with a finger directly on the screen.

Serving up more features in smaller packages was the major theme at Apple's media event Monday, as the company ushered in a downsized four-inch iPhone SE and a refreshed 9.7 inch iPad Air called the iPad Pro - with both products borrowing tricks from their bigger sisters. Unlike Samsung, which sells a ton of big-screen "phablet" phones, Apple has seen its 6 series iPhone sales be far stronger in the smaller-screened, 4.7-inch 6S model than in the 5.5-inch 6S Plus. Consumer Intelligence Research Partners suggests the smaller iPhone 6S made up 48 percent of all U.S. iPhone sales during Apple's fiscal first quarter this year, while the iPhone 6S Plus accounted for 19 percent.

Politicians of both parties are prone to making economically illiterate promises and claims during campaign seasons. Donald Trump is turning this illiteracy into an art form. One of his latest insane promises is to force Apple to manufacture in the United States. In a recent speech at Liberty University, Trump boasted, "We're going to get Apple to build their damn computers in this country instead of other countries. " In these few words, Trump gets trade economics wrong and shows his ignorance of modern manufacturing.

I OFTEN JOKE to my husband that I wish he had been my father. My father has never been in my life. My maternal grandparents raised me. But my grandfather, although a good man at heart, had a drinking problem. Many of my recollections of him as a young child involve my grandmother Big Mama piling my two brothers, two sisters and myself into our station wagon to search for Papa on Fridays before he could drink away his week's pay. Without a father or strong father figure, all my financial lessons came from Big Mama.
