"It is a natural abode full of light and warmth Euro chefs kitchen, wraparound terraces. Recent major re-design and renovation, indoor kids play area, pool w/ waterfall, Koi Pond."

The famous computer engineer and programmer, who founded Apple Computer with Steve Jobs and Ronald Wayne, made quite a few headlines when he showed up in Australia to among the first to buy an iPhone 5—and file paperwork to begin planning a permanent move to Australia.

"I actually love my house in California," he told Mercury News columnist Mike Cassidy in September. "I hope that I can keep the house I have now, or at least a house in California, always."

He is cutting himself off from California's new tax bite. People think they can "tax" the rich without any impact. Truth is there is always an impact when taxes go up. In this case California may soon loose all of the tax revenue it once had from this Silicon Valley Pioneer... who leaves next? Which companies will move to Austin? News at 11:00!

Australia will take more of a tax bite than Calif.
