Sister reveals Steve Jobs' final words

Steven P. Jobs, shown in this 1993 photo, became a billionaire Wednesday, Nov. 29, 1995, when a small digital studio he bought nine years ago went public to a storm of investor demand. In its first trading day, investors gave Pixar Animation Studios, the company that made the current No. 1 movie ``Toy Story,'' a market value of $1.46 billion. Jobs, who is Pixar's president, owns 80 percent of its 37.4 million outstanding shares. (Kristy Macdonald)

There are new details about the final hours of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs.

His sister says that just before he died, with his family around him, Jobs looked up and said his final words: "Oh wow. Oh wow. Oh wow."

In a eulogy published in the New York Times, Mona Simpson, Jobs' biological sister, says death didn't happen to her brother -- instead, he "achieved it."

Simpson didn't meet Jobs until she was 25. Jobs had been put up for adoption.

Simpson says her brother was humble, loyal and loved to keep learning.
