The no-holds barred biography of Steve Jobs has revealed that former president Bill Clinton consulted the Apple boss on what to do about his affair with Monica Lewinsky during a late night tete-a-tete.
Jobs reportedly replied: 'I don't know if you did it, but if so, you've got to tell the country.'
According to his biographer Walter Isaacson, after Jobs delivered his advice: 'There was silence on the other end of the line.'
Shortly after Jobs' death, Clinton spoke about his friendship with the Apple co-founder during an interview with Time's Managing Editor Richard Stengel.
Clinton said: 'When my daughter was at Stanford he got in touch with me, and said, ''It's hard to travel to see your child when you're President. I've got a place out in the country.
''You and Hillary can stay there and bring Chelsea and her friends there anytime you want to.'''
'He gave me a priceless gift: the opportunity to see my child while I was still a very public figure, so I'm highly biased in his favor. Plus, even I can work an iPad.'
