Steve jobs mark Zuckerberg

Steve Jobs writer Walter Isaacson has been just on stage by Don Graham, CEO of the Washington Post Company & a Facebook board member.

The 60 Minutes conference with Steve Jobs writer Walter Isaacson is up on the internet, but one of the most exciting parts is an outtake that didn’t make it into the TV segment.  In it, we hear Steve Jobs speaking about his rivals straightly from some of Isaacson’s recorded interviews.  While Jobs was withering in his valuation of Google and Microsoft, he spoke respect for Facebook and creator Mark Zuckerberg.

“We discourse about social networks in the plural,” Jobs expressed Isaacson, “but I don’t see anyone other than Facebook out there. Only Facebook, They are controlling this.  I respect Mark Zuckerberg for not selling out, for deficient to make a company.  I respect that a lot.”

So obviously talk turned to the late Apple CEO and his association with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

"Jobs meant a huge amount to the education of Mark," Graham told Isaacson. "Mark will discourse about that until the cows come home."

Mark Zuckerberg says he asked Steve Jobs about how to construct a high-quality squad and great products, but rejects Apple and Facebook ever talked about gaining.

The admissions come as part of an in-depth interview among PBS's Charlie Rose and Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg & COO Sheryl Sandberg. The wide interview covers all of the foundations, such as when Facebook will ever make games (no, Zuck says) & what Zuckerberg thinks of Google+.

Though, the most stimulating part of the conference comes when the trio starts conversing Zuckerberg's relationship with Steve Jobs. "I had a lot of queries for him on how to make a team around you," he says in reply to one of Rose's questions. "That’s absorbed in building as high quality and decent things as you are. How to keep a group focused, right, when I think the tendency for superior companies is to try to fray & go into all these changed areas."

Zuckerberg admits respect for Apple because, like Facebook, it is out to build a corporation that will change the world slightly than fatten the bottom line. Rose then asks Zuckerberg whether the two corporations had ever talked about an achievement.

"No. I don’t think it ever actually got there," he says. "I mean, nor would I have required selling it." Sandberg and Zuckerberg then start a conversation about how Jobs never raised the issue as he understood that Zuckerberg had no concern in selling. We here at Mashable have got differing stories about whether Apple has ever tried to get Facebook, but we find it hard to trust the two companies never talked about the matter at some level, whether extreme or just in passing.

Sandberg ends the conference with a strong note for women. "If you study men and women in college today in this nation, the men are more determined than the women," she says. "And until females are as motivated as men, they’re not going to attain as much as men."
