“On July 31, 2004, Steve Jobs underwent surgery to remove a malignant tumor from his pancreas. A few weeks later, he permitted Diana Walker, his favorite Time Magazine contract photographer, to shoot him in his Palo Alto home.” Describes Fortune.

The rare photos of the post operation Steve Jobs in his home office were shot in August 2004.

It shows the Apple CEO in a minimalistic furnished / rustic / zen house. What computer does Steve Jobs use at home? Being 2004, he is using PowerMac G5, 30″ Apple Cinema Display, iSight video camera, white Apple Keyboard, and Apple Pro Mouse. The billionaire has a semi-messy desk, like most creative types.

“This was a very typical time. I was single. All you needed was a cup of tea, a light, and your stereo, you know, and that’s what I had.” Steve Jobs describes.

    Nice shots.

    I was wondering if the boy on the computer monitor is Steve’s son, or if it’s Steve himself when he was younger? I”m guessing that it’s his son, because, boy-oh-boy, does he ever look like the old man!
