As the weather gets colder and colder, 2018 is finally coming to

As the weather gets colder and colder, 2018 is finally coming to an end.

 

Events happen every year, especially this year. Beloved Aidou got married, worshipped stars retired, familiar media people died, once worshipped people quit the stage bit by bit, do not know what you got and lost in 2018, but for drip drip, 2018 is indeed a very bad year, just yesterday’s drip travel conference, 36-year-old CEO Chen Wei clearly said that 2018 is the year of his life. Employees’annual bonuses are halved, and executives have no annual bonuses.


As we all know, in 2018, because of several bad incidents of rape and murder of female passengers by drivers, users were extremely disappointed with the safety performance of drip, which led to the suspension of drip’s original plan to go public this year. Of course, in addition to the negative news impact of dripping itself, dripping this year’s overall business development is also very bad, coupled with this year’s economic circle than in the past has been relatively depressed a lot, the environment plus its own factors, leading to dripping this year’s poor results.

Droplet belongs to the kind of “other people’s annual meeting” in the past few years. According to reports, the annual end-of-the-year award grade before Droplet comes according to six months’salary, four months’ salary and two months’salary. If the salary is halved at the end of this year, it may only be one or two months’ salary. The employees of Droplet down, but they still have confidence in the company. That drop in addition to the security system of this barrier, the drop in 2019 may have to face these four barriers?

1. Safety of online car booking

This is a very serious problem that Drop has to face directly. Several downwind tragedies in 2018 have also given Drop a very profound lesson. Especially after the incident, the safety incidents that all kinds of netizens have unearthed have aggravated the public’s distrust of the safety performance of online car appointment. This is undoubtedly the most important thing that Drop should pay attention to and implement the solution. Far from saying, if even one similar thing happens again in 2019, it will be difficult to explain it to the public.

2. When will the windmill be restored

Since the tragedy happened, Drop-drop announced that it had been offline indefinitely, and it has not been restored. Although people have questioned the safety of Drop-drop, there are still many users who need to use it. Many netizens have said that “it’s really a piece of rat excrement, which damages a pot of porridge”. There is no problem with the existence of the downwind vehicle itself. Long-distance hitching is convenient. Suitable and comfortable, do not crowded buses in the early rush hours, and for those who drive by the windmill, they can earn some gas money on the way to and from work or home. The existence of the windmill has its great significance. So when the windmill will be restored is also a question.

3. Transportation Capacity Guarantee of Drop-drop Travel

Everyone knows that it is not as easy to take a taxi as it used to be. Since the government introduced the restraint management measures, it often takes a long queue to take a taxi in the rush hour sooner or later. It can’t be dispatched alone. I believe that this is also a huge problem that dripping will face in 2019.

4. How to Develop New Business

After several vicious incidents, Droplet’s new business has entered the cold winter directly. Shared bicycle, finance, automobile industry, Droplet take-out and so on are still in operation. Where are these businesses going in the cold winter of the Internet?

In 2019, we are facing so many severe challenges. From the user’s point of view, Xiaobian expects to improve the security system as soon as possible. As an Internet innovation enterprise which has been developing rapidly for six years, it is not necessarily a good thing for the company to experience some frustrations and setbacks in time.

 

However, in 2019,

two weeks later,

the challenge is still

not small for Xiaobian. !

A Canadian court recently ruled in the attempted killing

A Canadian court recently ruled in the attempted killing of a former roommate from

China by a doctor of polymer chemistry from Queen’s University of Canada.

The defendant, Wang Mou, 26, graduated from Sun Yat-sen University in Material Chemistry. After graduation, he was admitted to Queen’s University in Polymer Chemistry and became a doctor. Wang Mou’s academic achievements are excellent. He not only published many articles in the core journals of chemistry, but also applied for scientific and technological patents. In 2015, Queen’s University also honored his academic achievements.


Wang Mou and Hu Mou are colleagues of the same research group on polymer nanostructured materials. They had been roommates for some time. Hu said that when they shared the rent, once Wang wanted to borrow Hu’s room for a weekend party, Hu refused. But Wang Mou took advantage of Hu Mou’s absence at the weekend, and opened Hu Mou’s room directly to start “crazy”. As a result, the room was messed up by the people who attended the party. Hu Mou came home, very angry to find Wang Mou’s theory, but Wang Mou denies it. Later, Hu Mou could no longer bear Wang Mou, so he moved out.


From January this year, Hu felt that his food tasted bitter, and produced symptoms of vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhea and dizziness. At that time, he thought the food he bought was spoiled, so he didn’t care. But this situation lasted for about a month, arousing Hu’s vigilance. Hu also found that his water cup had a strong chemical flavor. He dared not drink any more. On January 26, his guide reported that he might be poisoned.


After the instructor authorized Hu to install a surveillance camera in front of his desk, the result of the day was that Wang Mou used a syringe to drip yellow unknown liquid into Hu Mou’s food and drinking water. Hu immediately reported the case and handed in the food that had been eaten before with the taste of chemicals. Police arrested Wang the same day, but Wang insisted that he was only playing a prank, injecting liquid is ethanol.


After careful testing, the police determined that the food contained a highly toxic substance, N-nitrodimethylamine. This chemical material is often used in the manufacture of industrial sulfur, rubber accelerants, rocket fuels and insecticides. If it enters the human body, it will cause serious damage to the liver and kidney. In the field of biomedicine, it is used to induce tumors. Hu said angrily that the police did not find out the toxicity until mid-April, when the best time for treatment had been missed and his liver was seriously damaged.


For the reason of Wang’s poisoning, Hu said it might be out of jealousy. Because they have published papers together, Hu Mou’s name ranks ahead of Wang Mou. However, Wang’s lawyer disagreed with Hu’s statement. He emphasized that Wang’s achievements were excellent and he would not commit crimes because of jealousy.

In front of the evidence, Wang only pleaded guilty and kept silent about the motive of the crime and the source of the poison. Hu Mou thinks that Wang Mou’s confession is a tactical evasion of trial, not a sincere confession, because it can be lightly punished. As for the source of the poison,

it is known that Queen’s University and Medical College

have not ordered the substance for

five years, and no one knows from what channel Wang

Mou got it. But for Wang Mou, self-configuration is not complicated.

Will the film industry bubble go back to “cold winter” and will rebirth in Nirvana?

2018 is about to pass, but this year’s movie and TV series are much less expensive than last year’s. At the Sansheng 2018 Summit, many industry insiders believed that the film and television industry may have entered a “cold winter”.

 

However, some people believe that “cold winter” is not necessarily a bad thing. Limiting the star’s high pay and giving the IP only a cooling will help the industry remove foam and restore rationality. Because the colder the winter,

the more quality content is needed, the more creative initiative is needed, and the more user value is needed.

“Explosion drama” reduced, the film industry bubble removed?

Compared with 2017, the performance of this year’s films and TV dramas is sluggish. Last year, TV dramas exploded continuously, from “Peach Blossoms of the Thirteenth Life”, “My First Half Life” to

“The Name of the People” and “The Flowers Blossom and Leaves Are Round That Year”. There was also a phenomenal film “Warwolf 2” in the film.

 

Looking back at 2018, however, TV dramas have made little money, especially Star Dramas on Satellite TV. The effects of Fuyan and Ruyi Zhuan are not as good as expected, but the unexpected fire of Yuzheng’s Yanxi Strategies.

The quantity and quality of online dramas and movies are not as good as last year. According to the “Research Report on the Development of China’s Online Audio-visual Industry in 2018”,

the total number of online dramas on the Internet reached 214 in the first three quarters of 2018, which is expected to reach 280 by the end of 2018; the number of online movies reached 1030, and the total number of online dramas is expected to reach 1373 in the whole year. Compared with 555 online dramas and 5620 online movies last year, the number of them has dropped dramatically.

 

IP dramas are also cooling down, and TV dramas adapted from novels such as

“Songs of Fire”, “Fengqiuhuang”, “All the Way Flowers Send Each Other” have had a flat response.

Han Zhijie, Senior Vice President of Penguin Film and Television, reviewed the failure of this year’s Big IP case, and summed up three problems: being left and right by data, catering to the market, betting more energy and budget on traffic stars rather than creating. In his view, IP itself is not wrong, but the market’s perception of IP is wrong.

“The market is becoming more and more mature, and the platform is growing. Now it’s hard to get a pass if you want to hold a page of PPT for sale.” He said.

Wang Ran, founder of Yikai Capital, believes that the so-called “cold winter” has several major backgrounds. One is that in the past five years, a large influx of funds into the film and television industry, coupled with a large demand for content on the three major video websites, has created a large number of “players” who should not enter the industry. And many companies have low profitability, hovering between loss and small profit.

In his view, the low threshold of the film and television industry will lead to inadequate investment in the early stage of IP development, it is difficult to form a large-scale and predictable value precipitation,

film and television companies in front of the

front-line cafe has become a “vulnerable group”,

independent film and television

companies are also difficult to form a scale.

In addition to the television commercials, they created one

In addition to the television commercials, they created one of the most

memorable print campaigns in history. Each ad featured a black-and-white

portrait of an iconic historical figure with just the Apple logo and the words

 

“Think Different” in the corner. Making it particularly engaging was that

the faces were not captioned. Some of them—Einstein, Gandhi, Lennon,

Dylan, Picasso, Edison, Chaplin, King—were easy to identify. But others

 

caused people to pause, puzzle, and maybe ask a friend to put a name to

the face: Martha Graham, Ansel Adams, Richard Feynman,

Maria Callas, Frank Lloyd Wright, James Watson, Amelia Earhart.

 

Most were Jobs’s personal heroes. They tended to be creative people who

had taken risks, defied failure, and bet their career on doing things in a

different way. A photography buff, he became involved in making sure they

 

had the perfect iconic portraits. “This is not the right picture of Gandhi,” he

erupted to Clow at one point. Clow explained that the famous Margaret

Bourke-White photograph of Gandhi at the spinning wheel was owned by

 

Time-Life Pictures and was not available for commercial use. So Jobs called

Norman Pearlstine, the editor in chief of Time Inc., and badgered him into

making an exception. He called Eunice Shriver to convince her family to

 

release a picture that he loved, of her brother Bobby Kennedy touring

Appalachia, and he talked to Jim Henson’s children personally

to get the right shot of the late Muppeteer.

 

He likewise called Yoko Ono for a picture of her late husband, John Lennon.

She sent him one, but it was not Jobs’s favorite. “Before it ran, I was in New

York, and I went to this small Japanese restaurant that I love, and let her

 

know I would be there,” he recalled. When he arrived, she came over to his

table. “This is a better one,” she said, handing him an envelope. “I thought

I would see you, so I had this with me.” It was the classic photo of her and

John in bed together, holding flowers, and it was the one that

 

Apple ended up using. “

I can see why John

fell in love with her,”

Jobs recalled.

Pippin looked out from the shelter of Gandalf’s cloak.

Pippin looked out from the shelter of Gandalf’s cloak.

He wondered if he was awake or still sleeping, still in the swift-moving dream in which he had been wrapped so long since the great ride began. The dark world was rushing by and the wind sang loudly in his ears. He could see nothing but the wheeling stars,

and away to his right vast shadows against the sky where the mountains of the South marched past. Sleepily he tried to reckon the times and stages of their journey, but his memory was drowsy and uncertain.

There had been the first ride at terrible speed without a halt, and then in the dawn he had seen a pale gleam of gold, and they had come to the silent town and the great empty house on the hill. And hardly had they reached its shelter when the winged shadow had passed over once again, and men wilted with fear. But Gandalf had spoken soft words to him, and he had slept in a corner, tired but uneasy, dimly aware of comings and goings and of men talking and Gandalf giving orders. And then again riding, riding in the night. This was the second, no, the third night since he had looked in the Stone. And with that hideous memory he woke fully, and shivered, and the noise of the wind became filled with menacing voices.

A light kindled in the sky, a blaze of yellow fire behind dark barriers Pippin cowered back, afraid for a moment, wondering into what dreadful country Gandalf was bearing him. He rubbed his eyes, and then he saw that it was the moon rising above the eastern shadows, now almost at the full. So the night was not yet old and for hours the dark journey would go on. He stirred and spoke.

‘Where are we, Gandalf?’ he asked.

‘In the realm of Gondor,’ the wizard answered. ‘The land of Anórien is still passing by.’

There was a silence again for a while. Then, ‘What is that?’ CRIed Pippin suddenly, clutching at Gandalf’s cloak. ‘Look!

Fire, red fire!

Are there dragons in this land?

Look, there is another!’

For answer Gandalf CRIed aloud to his horse. ‘On, Shadowfax!

We must hasten. Time is short. See!

The beacons of Gondor are alight, calling for aid. War is kindled. See, there is the fire on Amon D?n, and flame on Eilenach; and there they go speeding west: Nardol, Erelas, Min-Rimmon, Calenhad, and the Halifirien on the borders of Rohan.’

But Shadowfax paused in his stride, slowing to a walk, and then he lifted up his head and neighed. And out of the darkness the answering neigh of other horses came; and presently the thudding of hoofs was heard, and three riders swept up and passed like flying ghosts in the moon and vanished into the West. Then Shadowfax gathered himself together and sprang away, and the night flowed over him like a roaring wind.

Pippin became drowsy again and paid little attention to Gandalf telling him of the customs of Gondor, and how the Lord of the City had beacons built on the tops of outlying hills along both borders of the great range, and maintained posts at these points where fresh horses were always in readiness to bear his errand-riders to Rohan in the North,

or to Belfalas in the South.

‘It is long since the beacons of the North were lit,’ he said; ‘

and in the ancient days of Gondor they were not needed,

for they had the Seven Stones.’ Pippin stirred uneasily.

“When you throw stones at a rat, beware of the vase

Guan Yu was still angry of the Prime Minister’s breach of decorum.

One day Guan Yu said to Liu Bei, “Brother, why did you prevent me from killing that rebel and so ridding the world of a scoundrel? He insults the Emperor and ignores everybody else.”

  “When you throw stones at a rat, beware of the vase,” quoted Liu Bei. “Cao Cao was only a horse’s head away from Our Lord, and in the midst of a crowd of his partisans. In that momentary burst of anger, if you had struck and failed, and harm had come to the Emperor, what an awful crime would have been laid to us!”

  “If we do not rid the world of him today, a worse evil will come of it,” said Guan Yu.

  “But be discreet, my brother. Such matters cannot be lightly discussed.”

  the Emperor sadly returned to his palace. With tears in his eyes, he related what had occurred in the hunt to his consort, Empress Fu.

  “Alas for me!” said he. “From the first days of my accession, one vicious minister has succeeded another. I was the victim of Dong Zhuo’s evil machinations. Then followed the rebellion of Li Jue and Guo Si. You and I had to bear sorrows such as no others have borne. Then came this Cao Cao as one who would maintain the imperial dignity, but he has seized upon all real authority and does as he wishes. He works continually for his own glorification, and I never see him but my back pricks. These last few days in the hunting field, he went in front of me and acknowledged the cheers of the crowd. He is so extremely rude that I feel sure he has sinister designs against me. Alas, my wife, we know not when our end may come!”

  “In a whole court full of nobles, who have eaten the bread of Han, is there not one who will save his country?” said she.

  Thus spoke the Empress, and at the same moment there stepped in a man who said, “Grieve not, O Imperial Pair! I can find a savior for the country.”

It was none other than the father of the Empress, Fu Wan.

“Have you heard of Cao Cao’s

wanton and perverse behavior?”

said the Emperor, drying his eyes.

Brennan spent a lot of her time that summer painting

Brennan spent a lot of her time that summer painting; she was talented, and she did a picture of a clown for Jobs that he kept on the wall. Jobs wrote poetry and played guitar. He could be brutally cold and rude to her at times, but he was also entrancing

 

and able to impose his will. “He was an enlightened being who was cruel,” she recalled. “That’s a strange combination.”

Midway through the summer, Jobs was almost killed when his red Fiat caught fire. He was driving on Skyline Boulevard in the Santa Cruz Mountains with a high school friend, Tim Brown, who looked back, saw flames coming from the engine, and

casually said to Jobs, “Pull over, your car is on fire.” Jobs did. His father, despite their arguments, drove out to the hills to tow the Fiat home.

In order to find a way to make money for a new car, Jobs got Wozniak to drive him to De Anza College to look on the help-wanted bulletin board. They discovered that the Westgate Shopping Center in San Jose was seeking college students who could

dress up in costumes and amuse the kids. So for $3 an hour, Jobs, Wozniak, and Brennan donned heavy full-body costumes and headgear to play Alice in Wonderland, the Mad Hatter, and the White Rabbit. Wozniak, in his earnest and

sweet way, found it fun. “I said, ‘I want to do it, it’s my chance, because I love children.’ I think Steve looked at it as a lousy job, but I looked at it as a fun

adventure.” Jobs did indeed find it a pain. “It was hot, the costumes were heavy, and after a while I felt like I wanted to smack some of the kids.” Patience was never one of his virtues.

Reed College

Seventeen years earlier, Jobs’s parents had made a pledge when they adopted him: He would go to college. So they had worked hard and saved dutifully for his college fund, which was modest but adequate by the time he graduated. But Jobs, becoming

ever more willful, did not make it easy. At first he toyed with not going to college at all. “I think I might have headed to New York if I didn’t go to college,” he recalled, musing on how different his world—and perhaps all of ours—might have been if he

had chosen that path. When his parents pushed him to go to college, he responded in a passive-aggressive way. He did not consider state schools, such as Berkeley,

where Woz then was, despite the fact that they were more affordable. Nor did he look at Stanford, just up the road and likely to offer a scholarship. “The kids who went to Stanford, they already knew what they wanted to do,

” he said. “They weren’

t really artistic. I wanted

something that was more

artistic and interesting.”

On Sunday evenings Jobs and Friedland would

On Sunday evenings Jobs and Friedland would go to the Hare Krishna temple on the western edge of Portland, often with Kottke and Holmes in tow. They would dance and sing songs at the top of their lungs. “We would work ourselves into an ecstatic

frenzy,” Holmes recalled. “Robert would go insane and dance like crazy. Steve was more subdued, as if he was embarrassed to let loose.” Then they would be treated to paper plates piled high with vegetarian food.

Friedland had stewardship of a 220-acre apple farm, about forty miles southwest of Portland, that was owned by an eccentric millionaire uncle from Switzerland named Marcel Müller. After Friedland became involved with Eastern spirituality, he turned it

into a commune called the All One Farm, and Jobs would spend weekends there with Kottke, Holmes, and like-minded seekers of enlightenment. The farm had a main house, a large barn, and a garden shed, where Kottke and Holmes slept. Jobs took on the task of pruning the Gravenstein apple trees. “Steve ran the apple

orchard,” said Friedland. “We were in the organic cider business. Steve’s job was to lead a crew of freaks to prune the orchard and whip it back into shape.”

Monks and disciples from the Hare Krishna temple would come and prepare vegetarian feasts redolent of cumin, coriander, and turmeric. “Steve would be starving when he arrived, and he would stuff himself,” Holmes recalled. “Then he

would go and purge. For years I thought he was bulimic. It was very upsetting, because we had gone to all that trouble of creating these feasts, and he couldn’t hold it down.”

Jobs was also beginning to have a little trouble stomaching Friedland’s cult leader style. “Perhaps he saw a little bit too much of Robert in himself,” said Kottke.

Although the commune was supposed to be a refuge from materialism, Friedland began operating it more as a business; his followers were told to chop and sell firewood, make apple presses and wood stoves, and engage in other commercial

endeavors for which they were not paid. One night Jobs slept under the table in the kitchen and was amused to notice that people kept coming in and stealing each other’s food from the refrigerator. Communal economics were not for him. “It started to get very materialistic,” Jobs recalled. “Everybody got the idea they were

working very hard for

Robert’s farm, and one

by one they started to leave.

I got pretty sick of it.”

Apple. It was a smart choice. The word instantly signaled

Apple. It was a smart choice. The word instantly signaled friendliness and simplicity. It managed to be both slightly off-beat and as normal as a slice of pie. There was a whiff of counterculture, back-to-nature earthiness to it, yet nothing could be more

American. And the two words together—Apple Computer—provided an amusing disjuncture. “It doesn’t quite make sense,” said Mike Markkula, who soon thereafter became the first chairman of the new company. “So it forces your brain to dwell on it.

Apple and computers, that doesn’t go together! So it helped us grow brand awareness.”

Wozniak was not yet ready to commit full-time. He was an HP company man at heart, or so he thought, and he wanted to keep his day job there. Jobs realized he

needed an ally to help corral Wozniak and adjudicate if there was a disagreement. So he enlisted his friend Ron Wayne, the middle-aged engineer at Atari who had once started a slot machine company.

Wayne knew that it would not be easy to make Wozniak quit HP, nor was it necessary right away. Instead the key was to convince him that his computer designs would be owned by the Apple partnership. “Woz had a parental attitude toward the

circuits he developed, and he wanted to be able to use them in other applications or let HP use them,” Wayne said. “Jobs and I realized that these circuits would be the core of Apple. We spent two hours in a roundtable discussion at my apartment, and I

was able to get Woz to accept this.” His argument was that a great engineer would be remembered only if he teamed with a great marketer, and this required him to

commit his designs to the partnership. Jobs was so impressed and grateful that he offered Wayne a 10% stake in the new partnership, turning him into a tie-breaker if Jobs and Wozniak disagreed over an issue.

“They were very different, but they made a powerful team,” said Wayne. Jobs at times seemed to be driven by demons, while Woz seemed a na?f who was toyed with by angels. Jobs had a bravado that helped him get things done, occasionally by

manipulating people. He could be charismatic, even mesmerizing, but also cold and brutal. Wozniak, in contrast, was shy and socially awkward, which made him seem childishly sweet. “Woz is very bright in some areas, but he’s almost like a savant,

since he was so stunted when it came to dealing with people he didn’t know,” said Jobs. “We were a good pair.” It helped that Jobs was awed by Wozniak’s engineering wizardry, and Wozniak was awed by Jobs’s business drive. “I never

wanted to deal with people and step on toes, but Steve could call up people he didn’t know and make them do things,” Wozniak recalled. “He could be rough on people he didn’t think were smart, but he never treated me rudely, even in later years

when maybe I

couldn’t answer

a question as

well as he wanted.”

Jobs worked out a plan to pay a guy he knew at Atari

Jobs worked out a plan to pay a guy he knew at Atari to draw the circuit boards and then print up fifty or so. That would cost about $1,000, plus the fee to the designer. They could sell them for $40 apiece and perhaps clear a profit of $700. Wozniak

 

was dubious that they could sell them all. “I didn’t see how we would make our money back,” he recalled. He was already in trouble with his landlord for bouncing checks and now had to pay each month in cash.

Jobs knew how to appeal to Wozniak. He didn’t argue that they were sure to make money, but instead that they would have a fun adventure. “Even if we lose our money, we’ll have a company,” said Jobs as they were driving in his Volkswagen bus. “For

once in our lives, we’ll have a company.” This was enticing to Wozniak, even more than any prospect of getting rich. He recalled, “I was excited to think about us like

that. To be two best friends starting a company. Wow. I knew right then that I’d do it. How could I not?”

In order to raise the money they needed, Wozniak sold his HP 65 calculator for $500, though the buyer ended up stiffing him for half of that. For his part, Jobs sold

his Volkswagen bus for $1,500. But the person who bought it came to find him two weeks later and said the engine had broken down, and Jobs agreed to pay for half of the repairs. Despite these little setbacks, they now had, with their own small

savings thrown in, about $1,300 in working capital, the design for a product, and a plan. They would start their own computer company.

Apple Is Born

Now that they had decided to start a business, they needed a name. Jobs had gone for another visit to the All One Farm, where he had been pruning the Gravenstein apple trees, and Wozniak picked him up at the airport. On the ride down to Los

Altos, they bandied around options. They considered some typical tech words, such as Matrix, and some neologisms, such as Executek, and some straightforward

boring names, like Personal Computers Inc. The deadline for deciding was the next day, when Jobs wanted to start filing the papers. Finally Jobs proposed Apple

Computer. “I was on one of my fruitarian diets,” he explained. “I had just come back from the apple farm. It sounded fun, spirited, and not intimidating. Apple took the edge off the word ‘computer.’ Plus, it would get us ahead of Atari in the phone book.” He told Wozniak that if a better name

did not hit them by

the next afternoon,

they would just stick with

Apple. And they did.
