In Walter Isaacson's biography of Apple CEO Steve Jobs that went on sale Monday, there's some fascinating detail about Jobs' stay in Memphis during 2009, when he got a liver transplant at Methodist University Hospital's transplant institute. Jobs, who died earlier this month at age 56, was ever the details man, even in his hospital bed. There's a moment in the book's recounting of Jobs' transplant when Jobs pulled off an oxygen mask, grumbled about the design and ordered someone to bring him five different choices of masks. He said he'd pick the one he liked. Same for the oxygen monitor on his finger.
