Websites. In response to the news, several websites have dedicated their homepages to the ex-CEO of Apple. BoingBoing remembered the original Mac interface design, Wired committed their homepage to a black remembrance of the man, while Google added a simple note to their minimalist site, recognising the loss of a great innovator.
