Steve Jobs' email address is pretty public. Has anyone actually sent an email to that address?
Scroll about three fifths of the way down the page.
Or start from page one instead of page 11.
That's not Steve's real e-mail address, his real one isn't public, and I'm sure never will be made public.
Nope, his 'work' email is firstname.lastname@example.org. When I worked at Apple, that's what he used to contact us. Other emails of interest...
email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org
Do you really think you should make these people's email addresses public. Not sure if you are telling the truth or not, but I know that whenever I have posted my email address in places before, (old addresses with limited storage), I have had problems with large quantities of spam. Even with efficient spam blockers, some can get through and if you get too fascist with spam, you can run the risk of blocking something real and important.
People like this probably have 'white lists', only people specified in the system will even be able to get an email to them. All the rest will be instantly trashed.
A more interesting question is: Has anyone received an email from teh Steve?
I can't imagine Steve using email... it seems far too mundane. I can imagine him waving his arms around to manipulate things in a Minority Report type-of-way though
I e-mailed one of "his e-mail addresses" a while ago and got a reply a few days later signed "Thanks, Steve". Doubt it was him though...lol.
I emailed him, his dang seceratary replied to it. I live in freaking Canada, and they requested to me to make a long distance call to him! I get to call Steve Jobs! YAY FREAKIDY YAY.
Just read that iGary thread. That is really great that things worked out for him, and I really understand why people love Steve Jobs now.
email@example.com would be a pretty obvious guess to Steve's e-mail address. But I bet it's got a whitelist. I couldn't imagine how much crap he would get without one (plus, with that email address posted all over the web, spam spiders would pick it up and have a field day with it)
I read the highlights of iGary's thread and am really happy that it all worked out for him. Steve is officially the man!
Yeah, I'm sure Steve has a white list. However, all of Steve's other mail is read by members of his office staff and farmed out accordingly.
But, I've emailed him before about my .Mac account not working (my account was corrupted on Apple's .Mac servers) and within hours I had .Mac engineers emailing me stating that they were made aware of my problem, and it would be fixed within three business days. Sure enough, it was (within a matter of hours). The email said something like "on behalf of Steve Jobs."
Last Friday I recieved my 2ghz MacBookPro. I have had minor heat issues, a minor processor whine, but most of all there is a big white line at the bottom of my screen that makes everything brighter. Anyways, I didn't even bother with tech support. I sent and email to a cerain email address, though I am not going to post it here, and the next day I got a call from the Executive Relations department setting up a replacement. And due to the fact that I am a student, they allowed for me to keep my current one untill the replacement arrived. Worked out great. So yes, you can email him and get things taken care of. I really, really think this shows alot about Apple. If you sent an email to Bill at M$ do you think you would get a call from the executive branch the next day? I really don't think so. I sent it after 7pm at night, got at call before 9am the next day on my way out the door for school. Gatta love Apple.
Yes, more than one.
I suspect, a couple were from underlings who signed his name. That happens all the time in big business/government. The individual themselves simply do not have the time to sort through every message.
However, if it is a certain type of message/content, then it will get elevated to the actual person.
But a couple, were from him. No doubt. One related to the Newton and one related to another issue.
...and no, I will not share the address that I used to contact him. Sorry.
You worked at Apple!?
Yeah, he did. (I know him a bit)
Your point being?
I'm aware of it's purpose as a form of punctuation within the english language, but what are you trying to infer by putting after those two quotes? They're not exactly definitive comments that simply require a period to reenforce them, if that was your intention.
I've never worked within Apple, but where I've worked within the CHQs of large corporates, it's usual for the CEO's PA to filter out any e-mail that isn't for the CEO themselves (the PAs always know what the CEO is actually interested in dealing with personally). The filtered e-mail gets forwarded to someone in the organisation tasked with chasing the issues raised, normally a member of the Marketing or Public Relations departments . That person then chases the relevant division's Head of Department to get the issue resolved. If the division's HOD doesn't comply within a given timescale, their non-compliance gets reported back to the CEO who then gets involved directly, so there's a lot of pressure on the HODs to get problems reported in this way sorted quickly.
It's normally the person in PR/Marketing that ends up replying to the customer, but they often "Send As.." the CEO themselves. As they are usually more heavily trained in Corporate Speak than the CEO themselves, the CEO will trust them to word the replies in a suitable way.
Oh, I thought you were having a pun battle with me. You know... "point".
I was just showing that whathisface's comment was redundant after someguy had already said he recieved an email from steve. The 'point 'was to push my post to the '1 character' minimum.
Yes, now in retrospect I just look like a tool.
The pun was intended, I just didn't get what you meant. It's all clear now though.
