Steve Jobs: I Almost Died

Steve Jobs isn’t all about the iPad. The Apple CEO made a surprise appearance at a California children's hospital to encourage the state to pass a law expanding the number of organ donors. Joined by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jobs described his own experience with illness, a rarely discussed topic for the reclusive CEO, which required a liver transplant. "I was almost one of the ones that died waiting for a liver in California last year," Jobs said, who noted that "Many others died waiting to receive one."
