  1. A MacDailyNews story about a Fortune story writing about a web site discovering photos from another web site that posted photos taken by a contract photographer who shot Steve Jobs. . . . six years ago.

    Still, good photos.

  2. Rumour was, back in the day, that he had a linux box on his Pixar desk. Nice to see a Mac front and centre there on his desk at home. You can tell a lot about a person from the environment they choose to live in. Steve’s office is simple, elegant and a place you would love to spend a lot of time around. Thats a lot like his Mac philosophy. WYSIWYG.

    Wide angle lens never flatters a face. Almost all pix looking at camera. Just like family snaps. No color shots?

    Depressing that someone could actually be proud of those.
