Apple On its website, Apple has just confirmed that its co-founder and former CEO, Steve Jobs, has passed away at age 56. After bringing the company back from the brink of bankruptcy and turning it into one of the world's most succesful technology companies, Jobs lost the battle with pancreatic cancer.

That was my first Mac too, not counting the ones I used at school of course. I've since come into possession of a fully working Performa 460, currently collecting dust in my office closet. I think I might just pull it out and fire up a game of Shadowgate for old times' sake, in Steve's honor.

And yes, I know that particular machine was released during the Jobs-less era at Apple, but besides my ancient iPod shuffle it's the only Apple-made device I still own.
