The first computer my parents ever bought me was an Apple Macintosh Classic. I wrote one of my first stories on that computer. At 12-years-old it was my first introduction into a world Steve Jobs helped create.

When the news first broke that Apple Inc.founder Steve Jobs died at the age of 56, finally succumbing to his battle with pancreatic cancer, I found out on my MacBook Pro. I then immediately received a text message about his passing from a friend via my iPhone.

(CBS News)  Steve Jobs' biological father had hoped to one day reunite with the son that he had never known. It was a meeting that would not come to pass.

On Wednesday, the 80-year-old Abdel-Fattah Jandali, a retired professor of political science, declined comment after Apple announced that Jobs had died. But in an August interview with Britain's Sun newspaper, Jandali expressed regret at having had no contact with Jobs over the years. He and his ex-wife were unmarried when they had a boy. The baby was later adopted by Paul and Clara Jobs, and named Steve. But in the interview, Jandali said he would have done things "entirely differently" if he could live his life again.

I have always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple’s CEO, I would be the first to let you know. Unfortunately, that day has come.

Considering the fact that Windows 95 hadn’t even been released when federal agents finally caught up with the computer hacker Kevin Mitnick, one might assume his new memoir would be full of stale old tech-and-­techniques that no one in 2011 could possibly care about. But as Mitnick makes clear here, don’t jump to conclusions.

While he excelled at infiltrating computer systems from a keyboard and had a sharp memory for numbers, “Ghost in the Wires” (written with William L. Simon) really showcases another of Mitnick’s skills: social engineering, or what he describes as “the casual or calculated manipulation of people to influence them to do things they would not ordinarily do.” By doing his research and impersonating authority figures over the phone or by e-mail, Mitnick found he could persuade just about anybody — programmers, technicians, even the nice lady at the Social Security Administration — to give him the things he wanted, like passwords, computer chips and personal information about F.B.I. informants on his tail. “People, as I had learned at a very young age, are just too trusting,” he writes.
