Charlie Rose interviews Mark Zuckerburg, Sheryl SandbergCharlie Rose interviewed Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and COO Sheryl Sandberg on his show, where he tried to get them to talk about what looks like a flat out war between Facebook, Google, Apple, and Amazon for the future.

Zuckerberg talks about Steve Jobs and the quote in Walter Isaacson's biography about him:

Mark Zuckerberg:
There is this quote I think in the book that just came out about him where, I mean, it's -

Charlie Rose:
The Walter Isaacson book.

Mark Zuckerberg:
Yeah. I mean, it's -- and I took it as this amazing compliment. He said, I admire Facebook because you guys don't want to sell out. …I know that's one of the ways in which -- in which we saw eye to eye on kind of what we were trying to do in the world.

Rose asks whether Apple ever tried to buy Facebook (no, Jobs never asked). While plenty of companies tried to buy Facebook in the early days, "No one even asks any more," says Sandberg.

Charlie Rose:
It's too big. Nobody can afford you anymore.

Sheryl Sandberg:
Exactly.

Charlie Rose:
Is that the essential idea?

Sheryl Sandberg:
Yeah.
