Gome stops paying employees' wages: only social security will be paid to employees before the end of December

According to "Prism", Huang Xiuhong, chairman of Gome, said at the Gome general meeting recently: "The company will only provide social security to its employees before the end of December, and will no longer pay wages."

Huang Xiuhong also added that "in the medium and long term in the future, there will also be uncertainty in the payment of wages", and employees will be required to sign a letter of commitment.

Some employees said they would refuse to sign, believing that Gome’s move was equivalent to forcing people to leave in disguise, and questioned its legitimacy. But at the same time, he also expressed his concern that after voluntarily resigning, it would be difficult to obtain the tens of thousands of yuan in wages that have been owed.

According to reports, Gome has launched a “salary reduction plan” since June to reduce expenses, and the salary payment of employees has been generally delayed.

In September, Gome responded to issues such as arrears of wages and cash flow crisis, saying that Gome has indeed encountered unprecedented difficulties and severe challenges, and its cash flow is under obvious pressure. Therefore, some temporary and emergency adjustments have been made to salary distribution. " .

Apple "abnormally increased" iPhone 14 / Plus production orders, or will cut prices

According to investment bank Nomura Securities, Apple is “abnormally increasing” production orders for regular iPhone 14 models.

The analysis report pointed out that Apple’s move may be due to digesting the components and production capacity released after the iPhone 14 Plus production cut, or preparing for special promotions.

Nomura Securities predicts that Apple may be preparing for an "unprecedented" price cut at the end of this quarter or the first half of next year to stimulate demand and destock.

WeChat PC version update supports extracting text in pictures

WeChat recently released the Windows 3.8.0 update, adding a number of features.

The functions of "sharing chat records when inviting friends into the group" and "group owner or group administrator pinning the message in the group" can help the group friends who have just joined the group to understand the historical messages in the group, and avoid repeated announcements and other types of information. .

In addition, the WeChat team also responded to the recent issue of multiple users reporting that their personal WeChat accounts were "logged in by unknown devices":

"Due to manufacturer settings and other reasons, the same device may show a different name in the WeChat login record." Therefore, the unknown device in the WeChat login history "is likely to be your own device."

At the same time, in order to stay online, WeChat will automatically log in to renew.

Tiffany is about to raise prices across the board, with an increase of up to 59%

Tiffany & Co., an American high-end jewelry brand, announced that it will adjust the prices of its entire line of products on Friday. The range of this round of products in the Chinese market ranges from 20% to 59%.

This price adjustment is a global price increase. A salesperson said that the increase of different product lines of the brand is different, and the largest increase of 59% is expected to be aimed at "yellow diamond" products.

Tiffany's price increase this time far exceeds the previous range of about 13%. In addition to objective factors such as rising costs and exchange rate changes, the business strategy of luxury companies to move closer to high-net-worth customers from the dimensions of pricing and service is also one of the important factors.

Google launches 'Thousand Languages ​​Project'

On the 2nd, Google held its annual AI event, which focused on the achievements of Google AI so far.

 Can Meituan's takeaway be delivered to Hong Kong?

Meituan, which is preparing to enter the Hong Kong market, must realize that grabbing market share from rivals with a first-mover advantage is tantamount to grabbing food from a tiger’s mouth.

Foodpanda, whose business is distributed in more than 500 cities around the world, has already landed in the Hong Kong market in 2014.

During this period, Foodpanda not only quickly acquired local experience, but also excelled in international operations. It has experience in high labor costs, strict protection of labor rights, and transaction compliance risk management in various regions and countries.

What's more, in fact, the food delivery industry in Hong Kong is still in a stage of low demand and slow development. Due to the high delivery fee of 30 yuan caused by high labor costs, and the premium of take-out meals, many restaurants start at nearly 90 yuan for delivery, making the price the "biggest reason for persuasion."

However, mistakes by competitors could also be an opportunity for Meituan.

Recently, some Foodpanda employees went on strike due to issues such as reduced delivery fees due to Foodpanda's new map system.

An accurate and transparent salary calculation system, stable map system and accurate distance calculation are still the demands of delivery personnel. And the data processing advantages that Meituan has accumulated over the years can play a role here.

In addition to the "burning money" subsidy as always, how much trial and error cost does Meituan have the patience to pay for this? How much experience can be accumulated globally available? This may be the issue that deserves more long-term attention in the sound of Meituan's "entry to Hong Kong".

iPhone 14 pro cannot be turned on when fully charged

According to a complaint from Black Cat, after a user charged the iPhone 14 pro overnight, the phone could not be turned on the next day.
