I could be wrong, but I believe his attempts were in addition to, not in lieu of, whatever traditional medicine had to offer. Unfortunately, for pancreatic cancer, there isn't a whole lot that medical science can currently do, thus another reason Jobs turned to anything that gave him hope.

Nimoy was one of the better actors in TOS with one of the best characters, and he seemed like a decent guy too in all the interviews I saw. So sad how they're all dying off. Goodbye another piece of my childhood.

Little Miss Sunshine Screenwriter Gets Nod For Star Wars: Episode VII 321

The screenwriter of Toy Story 3, and Little Miss Sunshine, Michael Arndt is writing the script for Star Wars: Episode VII according to Lucasfilm. From the article: "...The new movie has just entered pre-production and is slated to be released in 2015. It was announced just last month as Disney acquired Lucasfilm, but there’s still no word on what the major plot points of the new chapter will entail. However, Vulture reports that 'the studio’s brass want to bring back the three central characters of the original Star Wars: a much older Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, and Han Solo. No deals are in place with any of the original actors, though our source did say it had high ambition to sign up Mark Hamill, and EW recently reported that Harrison Ford was open to the idea of returning.'"
