Part of 60 Minutes' terrific interview with Steve Jobs biographer Walter Isaacson fixates, naturally, on mortality. As much as Jobs focused on perfecting the material, he always had an eye on the spiritual. Hear him talk about living and dying.

The Messaging subsidiary was formed in 2008 to focus on Thunderbird, but given Mozilla Labs' current focus on identity and contact management, it now makes sense for the groups to be merged.
