The Algerian first football team was supposed to play Cameroon in a friendly yesterday but the Cameroonian team couldn’t make it. The Algerian football federation decided to play the first team against the reserves.
In the the first half, the first team was a head with a goal but that soon changed in the second half when the reserves scored 4 goals to win the match 4-1.
Will that make the coach change the reserves to be the first team?
I’ve got a close friend that discovered that he was color blind in his early 20’s. He had no idea that he was. And I always thought that if you were color blind that you saw things in black and white. till he was diagnosed an shed light on the matter.
So basically every conversation were his color blindness comes up goes a little something like the video.
During a football match in Colombia, A canine decided to enter the pitch to show-off his moves. The dog outmaneuvered the players, officials and the staff on the field with some impressive display of skill. It took them over 3 minutes to get the dog off the pitch.
The director comes up and tells them not to make jokes about Hitler. What do they do next? They freaking make the rest of the show about Hitler.
Steve Jobs attention to detail in where you very least expect it is what makes him Steve Jobs.
This story was shared by Vic Gundotra (Google Senior Vice President) on Google+ yesterday after Steve decided to step down as Apple’s CEO.
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.
