Wollte schon gerade schlafen gehen, dann kam das bei mir an: Google Maps, neue Version.

Nach ein paar Minuten testen wird es mir ein bisschen unheimlich, wenn ich sehe, welche grünen Linien für Fahrradfahrer gedacht sind (Halde). Da müssen wohl viele Leute mit ihren angeschalteten Android-Handys hergefahren sein ;-)

Ich hoffe, ihr macht alle wenigstens eine spezielle Sache an diesem speziellen Tag.

Kommt ja nur alle 1/0,2524 Jahre wieder. Ungefähr. Genauer wäre alle 1/0,24219. Das reicht aber schon annähernd. Zumindest bis ca. ins jahr 3800. Übrigens hatten die Katholischen bis zum Jahr 2001 immer einen 24. Februar als Schalttag (quasi zweimal hintereindander #Punxsutawney). Warumauchimmer ... Vielleicht gibt es immer noch keinen Heiligen, der gerne am 29.02. seinen Namenstag feiern möchte. "annus bissextus"

I like this quote of Steve Jobs, below: "... unless the Caller ID said 'GOD', you should never pick up [your mobile] during services". Requiescat in pace.

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

Schon mal was von "kaudern" gehört? S.u.
Jens Scholz originally shared:
 
Stand der Dinge

Obwohl Kauder Jura studiert hat, Vorsitzender des Rechtsausschusses ist und sich öffentlich als Urheberrechtsexperte darstellte, reichten seine Kenntnisse in diesem Bereich also weniger weit, als bei vielen Internetnutzern. Dass ältere CDU-Politiker mit neuerer Technik oft nicht so vertraut waren, das wusste man bereits, seit Helmut Kohl die "Datenautobahn" zur Ländersache erklärte. Aber dass Personen, die im Rechtsausschuss über Gesetze entscheiden, nicht einmal von den juristischen Grundlagen eine Ahnung haben (wie kurz vor Kauder auch der SPD-Politiker Sebastian Edathy eindrucksvoll bewies), das machte klar, dass es im politischen System schwerer hakte, als viele vorher annahmen.
