Steve Jobs warned President Barack Obama that he would not be back in the White House for a second term unless he adopted more business-friendly policies, according to a new biography of the Apple Computer co-founder.

"You're headed for a one-term presidency," Jobs bluntly told Obama during a meeting in San Francisco in the fall of 2010.

The encounter is detailed in "Steve Jobs," by Walter Isaacson. The book will be released Oct. 24, but several news organizations obtained advance copies. Isaacson also talked about the biography in an interview with "60 Minutes" that will air Sunday on CBS.

The book describes Jobs as highly critical of the Obama administration's policy toward businesses, saying that companies were more like to build factories in China because of "regulations and unnecessary costs."

Nevertheless, Jobs offered to design ads for Obama's 2012 re-election campaign, the book says.

Jobs died Oct. 5 at age 56 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. In the biography, Isaacson also reveals that the computer genius regretted his decision to postpone cancer surgery for several months. Instead, he tried alternative therapies.

"I really didn’t want them to open up my body, so I tried to see if a few other things would work," Jobs said.
