Steve Jobs a schimbat culoarea aplicatiei Google inaintea de a o aproba in App Store

     Steve Jobs a fost un om meticulos, foarte meticulos chiar daca stam si citim informatiile publicate astazi de catre Vic Gundotra, unul dintre cei mai proeminenti lideri de la Google. Gundotra povesteste o intamplare care a avut loc acum cativa ani de zile cand Google pregatea lansarea aplicatiei proprii in App Store iar Steve Jobs a ajutat compania din Mountain View sa isi refaca logo-ul implementat in aplicatie. Lui Steve Jobs nu ii placea cum este colorat unul dintre cuvintele logo-ului asa ca a pus un angajat al Apple sa lucreze cu Google la schimbarea culorii si i-a dat un telefon lui Gundotra pentru a ii explica situatia.

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?”

     In final totul s-a rezolvat rapid insa interesanta este dedicarea si atentia la detalii a celui care a fost pana astazi CEO al Apple. Am observat ca mai toata lumea vorbeste despre Steve Jobs de parca ar fi murit, de parca ar fi disparut dintre noi insa Jobs a renuntat doar la slujba zilnica si nimic mai mult. Presedintii unora dintre cele mai mari companii din lume il elogiaza pe Jobs desi practic nu cred ca este deocamdata nevoie de asemenea discursuri si amintiri avand in vedere ca actualul membru al consiliului director al Apple inca traieste si continua munca inceputa in cadrul companiei.
