An Inside Job Blog: LOOSING MY IPHONE WAS THE BEST THING THAT EVER HAPPENED!
About 6 -7 weeks ago i was in Ibiza , we were staying at the beautiful Ushaia Tower Hotel. The Five star luxury hotel was populated by party-goers ready to cut their shapes and get their dancing going. No surprise there, after all it is Ibiza, the home of EDM (Electronic Dance Music). Day 3 of my stay in Ibiza , myself and friends decided to check out Pacha . I was told it would be an absolute crime to come to Ibiza and not do Pacha so Pacha i did. Later that night after some hardcore partying. I discovered a different kind of crime. Yes, my Iphone had been nicked! Now, anyone who has lost a phone knows… It is not the value of the phone but the precious contacts, messages, private videos, private tapes.. oh no! Anyway, i got back into the hotel and instead of worrying. I got on the Hotel room’s phone to our Head of Designs at Zuricom in China ,Simon Lee. Zuricom is our tablet pc manufacturing company. Our range , JK100, and the Zuricom Z3 (7 inch) Tabletphone sold 35,000 units last year and we have received rave reviews so far!
So… The call went as follows ;
Jordan: Simon, i have lost my Iphone.
Simon: Ok, sir. Sorry to hear that. We can get an assistant to call your insurers to courier a new one to you in the morning . It’s 3am in the morning here in China!!
Jordan: Fair enough, by the way sorry to wake you up so late. But, this conversation is worth getting up for. How are the new designs for Zuricom Z9 coming along?
Simon: Good, you will love it!
Jordan: Simon, i want us to design a brand new phone to add to the line of Zuricom products . It’s called , the Z-Phone. It would be Dual Sim card, so you can work two mobile numbers with one phone. It should also have installed a recovery tracking system automatically. So, if you loose your phone the tracking system can track your phone back whether it’s switched on or off. It should also run on Android, and …
Simon: That would require a six figure investment…… and at least a minimum 5 months of planning, then may be 4 months for tech!
Jordan : Great, let’s do it in 4 weeks! I am going to work on 20 pages of design, patent, and the intellectual property . I’ll send it to you by end of business tomorrow!
That conversation led to me finishing the 20 pages on the plane. Landing in London , getting a plane to China and in an executive board meeting with our board of Directors convincing them that it was a good idea to spend 3.5 million pounds on the new Z-Phone. After, some intense negotiation. We had the green light, and spent the next few weeks there with our design and research team all this at thesame time planning the launch of BYBA 2013 with Business Secretary of State , MP Vince Cable . We had to keep it all a secret and now i’m happy to say we can proudly introduce The Z-Phone to the world.
The Z-phone is the brand new offering by ZURICOM and i am proud. Good bye Blackberry, Iphone, Nokia, HTC… Good morning…. Z-Phone ! stylish, unique and exclusive phone for people who think different, and are always setting trends for others to follow.
