    Steve Jobs is known for changing the landscape of the technology world, but now he's helping to improve the way organ donations are treated with a new bill. This coming week marks his one year anniversary for his liver transplant.

    I heard something along the lines of Jobs couldn't buy his way to the top of the donor list there in CA so he shops around different states until he finds out that a hospital in TN would allow him to pay his way towards the top of their donor list which is why he had it done at a hospital in Memphis I believe.

    Don't know how much truth there is to it though... if it can't be proved I won't put any weight in it.
