60 Minutes - Walter Isaacson's biography of Steve Jobs

60 Minutes - Walter Isaacson's biography of Steve Jobs

(13:00) Great clip about the personal side of Steve Jobs. He was already very ill with cancer when he asked author Walter Isaacson to write his biography. He wanted an honest book that included his failings as well as his strengths. Steve Jobs: "Ever since I've had cancer... I find myself believing (in God) a bit more. Maybe it's because I want to believe in an afterlife, that when you die, it doesn't just all disappear. The wisdom you've accumulated, somehow it lives on. Yeah, but sometimes I think it's just like an on/off switch. Click and you're gone. And that's why I don't like putting on/off switches on Apple devices."
