Steve Jobs toward the end of his life was hoping that the wisdom he acquired would somehow live on. Jobs didn't like the off switch on Apple products and certainly didn't like them when it came to his time here.

The 60 Minutes interview with Jobs' biographer Walter Isaacson didn't reveal much we didn't already know. The interview covers Jobs' lack of a relationship with his biological father, his flaws and the decision to put off cancer surgery. Isaacson's biography, published by Simon & Schuster, a CBS company, of Jobs lands in a few hours.
