Steve jobs admired Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg for "not selling out,” the Apple icon told a biographer in an interview.

In a segment of an interview on the 60 Minutes news program’s website about Jobs’ tech rivals, biographer Walter Isaacson revealed some taped recordings of his multiple conversations with Jobs for the book released Monday.

"I only know him a little bit," said Jobs. “We talk about social networks in the plural but I don’t see anybody other than Facebook out there.”

“They are dominating this. I admire Mark Zuckerberg... for not selling out, for wanting to make a company."

In contrast, he spoke dismissively of major tech companies Microsoft and Google.

"Microsoft never had the humanities and the liberal arts in the DNA. It was a pure technology company. And they just didn't get it," Jobs said.

"But Google's the same way. They just don't get it."
