iPhone 14 Pro Max hits longest shipping time

On September 21, Apple’s official website showed that the iPhone 14 Pro is placed on the same day, and the estimated delivery time is 5-6 weeks, and the iPhone 14 Pro Max is 6-7 weeks. The 6-7 week time exceeded last year's average wait time for the iPhone 13 Pro series, setting Apple's longest "standby time".

At present, if you want to buy the 512GB or 1TB capacity version of the iPhone 14 Pro Max, the delivery date is already 2022/11/10 – 2022/11/17.

Unlike previous years, this year's iPhone 14 Pro series models are more popular with consumers. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that after the production line switch, Pro models will account for 65% of iPhone 14 shipments in the second half of the year, with Pro Max being the most popular model.

Movie tickets cannot be refunded or changed, it belongs to the overlord clause

Due to the scattered and miscellaneous characteristics of my country's cinema industry, there is currently no unified industry norm for movie ticket refund and change policies. The non-refundable rule for movie and concert tickets seems to have become an unspoken rule in the industry.

So, is this provision legally tenable?

Wang Rui, a lawyer from the Shanghai branch of Global Law Firm, said that the "Civil Code" has clear provisions on standard clauses, and the standard clauses that increase the responsibility of consumers and reduce the responsibility of sellers are a kind of "overlord clause".

In this regard, consumers can protect their legitimate rights and interests through civil lawsuits, including reporting to the Consumers Association.

Pinduoduo will not launch "Chop a Knife" overseas for the time being

According to "LatePost", Pinduoduo's overseas version of Temu will not launch the "Chop a Knife" function for the time being, and the team may take the form of a content community on the mobile terminal to improve the transaction conversion rate.

A cross-border industry source said that Pinduoduo's domestic "slash-and-slash" method is not suitable for the European and American markets, because there will be risks of "induced marketing" and "unfair competition".

In addition, the launch budget of Temu in September may reach 1 billion yuan, and the market expenses in the first three months will be concentrated on public domain traffic acquisition and content-based delivery.

Google's "About Your Results" feature goes live

At I/O 2022 in May, Google announced the About Your Results feature. Yesterday, this feature was already available on Android.

Through this feature, Google users can ask Google to remove personal information such as their ID cards, bank card account numbers, handwritten signatures, medical records and other personal information in Google search results.

However, Google also cautions: "Removing contact information from Google Search does not remove it from the web, which is why you may want to contact the hosting site directly."

Spotify launches audiobook service

Spotify will start offering audiobooks next week, expanding beyond music and podcasts.

Users will be able to hear more than 300,000 titles on Spotify by the likes of horror novelist Stephen King, journalist Malcolm Gladwell and romance novelist Abby Jimenez.

Audiobooks will first be pushed to users in the form of editorial recommendations, and then algorithmic recommendations will be added based on users' listening habits.

It’s worth mentioning that Spotify has been resisting Apple’s 30% commission on in-app purchases. So instead of buying these audiobooks within Spotify, Spotify will guide users through the browser.

Airbnb isn't worried about a recession

Recession isn't a huge problem for Airbnb, and it could even be a good thing.

In fact, Airbnb was founded in the early days of the 2008 economic crisis. Blecharczyk, Airbnb's chief strategy officer, noted that renting out a portion of a home is a way for people to supplement their income when money is tight.

Regarding the travel industry slump, Blecharczyk believes that people will still want to take a vacation, but will be more value-conscious — and Airbnb can meet that desire. Because Airbnb has a wealth of housing resources covering various price points.

Finally, Airbnb is betting its future on the remote working trend.

The number of new hosts under the age of 25 increased by 90% in the second quarter of this year, and long-term stays of more than 28 days are also increasingly popular. Blecharczyk thinks it has something to do with flexible working:

“Young people not only travel on Airbnb as guests, but they also become hosts to subsidize their travel.”

At the same time, Airbnb itself strongly supports the remote work model, allowing employees to freely participate in remote work in different regions:

"At the end of the day, talent is the scarcest resource, and they've made it loud and clear that they value remote work."

Apple Education Deals Ending Soon

This year, Apple's Enjoy Education deals, which started on July 14th, will end on September 26th.

During the offer period, save even more on a Mac or iPad with educational savings, plus savings on Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard, and 20% off AppleCare+.

Of course, everyone pays more attention to the part that sends headphones. During the event, buy a select Mac or iPad with an educational discount and get a pair of AirPods (2nd generation). As in previous years, if you want to upgrade AirPods to AirPods 3 or the new AirPods Pro, you only need to make up the difference.

It should be noted that this year may be the last time that the back-to-school education discount promotion will give AirPods 2 as a benefit, and next year will fully enter the era of education discount gift cards.
