Just wanted to share something I sent to Apple:


My deepest condolences to Steve's family and everyone at the Apple family. I converted in 2003 and I've had an Apple product by my side ever since. All the brilliant hard work every member at Apple has put into their products has made my life immeasurably better & pushed my thinking.

My first Mac was a 1GHz Ti Powerbook G4. It didn't have a disk drive & I thought it was crazy. I didn't know how I would turn in my class projects; I didn't know how a product could exist without it. Within 6 months, no one turned in projects with disks, the nearly 9 year old computer still works still with a beautiful screen that's now helping my cousin through college.

My 5g 30GB iPod was the most perfect product I've ever purchased. It was the first time I had a digital library & it was always there for me to be the soundtrack to my life. Though I've had an iPhone with me since it came out; sometimes you get phone calls or emails you'd rather not get. The iPod was always perfect. A lot of the great memories I have of the past 10 years, I associate with music I was listening to at the time, and it was all on the iPod.

I don't know who will read this but I just wanted to say you carry the torch for the Moses of our industry. I don't know who will show us the way now. Without him a computer would never had been made for a normal person like me. The mouse, a Graphical User Interface, touch interface, voice interface. All existed before him, but he showed the rest of us the way. I'm so devastated. I feel lost and I don't know where to look.

All my thoughts and prayers are with you.

I'm incredibly impressed by the flexibility of this guy's voice! ... Is it odd that this makes me want to take up singing again?

What a wonderful gesture. 
 
Personally providing free flu shots to all San Francisco bay area kids at Target -- just walk in.  Research shows giving kids flu shots can have a big effect in preventing flu in the whole region and protecting elderly.  (Don't worry, I'm not actually administering the shots :)

The CDC has designated December 2–8 as National Influenza Vaccination Week to highlight the importance of continuing flu vaccination throughout the flu season.  So happy National Influenza Vaccination Week.

+Jeff Jarvis Hi Prof Jarvis. I was curious if you (or anyone else) had ever approached Amazon about being able to personalize your digital sales. I was looking for your audiobook & trying to decide between it or the kindle version of your book. Since I live in NYC I was thinking how awesome it would be to try and get you to sign a copy but realized I'd never have use for a dead tree version. I thought it'd be cool if there was a way to "sign" the kindle version using the touchscreen of a phone/tablet, or record an audio dedication/message to the audiobook. Would that be of interest to you or your readers?

Icon Ambulance

One Sunday morning, January 6th, 2008 I was attending religious services when my cell phone vibrated. As discreetly as possible, I checked the phone and noticed that my phone said "Caller ID unknown". I choose to ignore.

After services, as I was walking to my car with my family, I checked my cell phone messages. The message left was from Steve Jobs. "Vic, can you call me at home? I have something urgent to discuss" it said.

Before I even reached my car, I called Steve Jobs back. I was responsible for all mobile applications at Google, and in that role, had regular dealings with Steve. It was one of the perks of the job.

"Hey Steve - this is Vic", I said. "I'm sorry I didn't answer your call earlier. I was in religious services, and the caller ID said unknown, so I didn't pick up".

Steve laughed. He said, "Vic, unless the Caller ID said 'GOD', you should never pick up during services".

I laughed nervously. After all, while it was customary for Steve to call during the week upset about something, it was unusual for him to call me on Sunday and ask me to call his home. I wondered what was so important?

"So Vic, we have an urgent issue, one that I need addressed right away. I've already assigned someone from my team to help you, and I hope you can fix this tomorrow" said Steve.

"I've been looking at the Google logo on the iPhone and I'm not happy with the icon. The second O in Google doesn't have the right yellow gradient. It's just wrong and I'm going to have Greg fix it tomorrow. Is that okay with you?"

Of course this was okay with me. A few minutes later on that Sunday I received an email from Steve with the subject "Icon Ambulance". The email directed me to work with Greg Christie to fix the icon.

Since I was 11 years old and fell in love with an Apple II, I have dozens of stories to tell about Apple products. They have been a part of my life for decades. Even when I worked for 15 years for Bill Gates at Microsoft, I had a huge admiration for Steve and what Apple had produced.

But in the end, when I think about leadership, passion and attention to detail, I think back to the call I received from Steve Jobs on a Sunday morning in January. It was a lesson I'll never forget. CEOs should care about details. Even shades of yellow. On a Sunday.

To one of the greatest leaders I've ever met, my prayers and hopes are with you Steve.

-Vic

Introduction
I love Central Park and if I'm not working you might find me there or in the Met. I love my wife, who lives with me here in New York and works at Albert Einstein Medical School uncovering the mysteries of the brain. 

I've played ice/roller hockey all my life, which is strange considering I've lived near a beach almost all my life (and yes I can surf though not well). I play the guitar (acoustic/electric/bass). I'm very active; I workout, play tennis, basketball, hockey, golf etc. (I'm up for pretty much anything). i like going out, spending time with friends. Trying to cook, though anyone who knows me, knows I only make one thing I would actually serve to other people. I love to travel. I lived in Japan for a while and have visited most places in Europe and Asia. I like trying and learning new things, especially things my friends are interested in; that way I learn more about them.
