In a biography by veteran technology reporter Brent Schlender and Fast Company executive editor Rick Tetzeli, it was revealed that Steve Jobs refused to accept Tim Cooks offer to transplant a portion of his functioning liver. – “He cut me off at the legs, almost before the words were out of my mouth,” said Cook. “‘No,’ he said. ‘I’ll never let you do that. I’ll never do that.’”.
Revealed within an interview by historian John Markoff as part of “An Evening with Original iPhone Innovators & Engineers” at the Computer History Museum, former Apple executive Scott Forstall shared how Steve Jobs seemingly saved his life during a period of serious illness.
