Kindle宣布退出,一个时代的结束_亚马逊_中国_市场 2022-06-07 12:05 来源: 钛媒体APP原标题:Kindle宣布退出,一个时代的结束图片来源@视觉中国6月2日下午,亚马逊服务号发布公告称,亚马逊将在一年后,即2023年6月30日,在中国停止Kindle电子书店的运营。在此之后,用户将不能购买新的电子书。对于已经购买的电子书,用户可以在2024年6月30日之前下载,并且可以在此后继续阅读。至于Kindle电子书阅读器,亚马逊官方表示将继续为Kindle电子书阅读器提供客户服务以及质保服务,但也将停止出售,并且表示2022前半年内在亚马逊中国授权经销渠道购买的产品将可退货。前不久,Kindle京东出现大面积缺货、关店的迹象,让人们不禁怀疑这家辉煌至极的电子书品牌是否即将退出中国市场。虽然之后官方辟谣称只是库存卖完了,但人们对此仍持保留态度。直至如今,不到半年时间,Kindle电子书还是宣布退出中国市场。作为许多人学生时代的回忆,Kindle的黯然退场还是令无数人唏嘘不已。Kindle自进入中国9年,发展迅速,红极一时。但却在中国数字出版行业连年增长的情况下黯淡退出,Kindle败在了哪里?中国数字阅读市场还有未来么?01 从“阅读神器”到“泡面伴侣”Kindle意为点燃火焰,寓意书籍与智慧所带来的兴奋。在此愿景之下,2007年11月19日,第一代Kindle诞生,售价399美元,在上市后仅五个半小时内被抢购一空,之后断货长达6个月。此后,亚马逊推出了Kindle 2和Kindle DX,并发布了Kindle Keyboard、iPod touch版本的Kindle阅读软件。随后Kindle系列基本以每年一款新品的节奏推出,稳稳地站住了自己的市场位置。2013年,Kindle Paperwhite 2发布。此时,Kindle已经成为电子书阅读器的代名词,遥遥领先于其他竞争对手。与此同时在这一年,Kindle正式进入中国市场。前几年每年都保持着两位数的增长率,到了2016年,中国成为Kindle在全球的第一大市场。2018年,亚马逊发布数据显示,Kindle在中国卖出数百万台,线上书店资源达到70万本。但是在此之后,Kindle好像逐渐变得销声匿迹。也是从2018年开始,Kindle的光环开始逐渐消退,不仅购买数量开始下降,并且已购买的用户也开始抛弃。二手交易平台闲鱼的数据显示,从2019年8月至2020年8月,闲鱼成交了超过40万台Kindle阅读器,月均突破3万台,交易均价仅为356元。图片来源:天下网商网友们纷纷表示:本以为自己离成为文豪只差一个Kindle,买完之后发现自己离一碗泡面只差一个Kindle。因此Kindle又有了“泡面神器”的称号,连亚马逊官方的广告也以“Kindle盖泡面”自嘲,以此挽回日渐惨淡的销量。直到去年年底,网友发现Kindle天猫旗舰店关闭、京东旗舰店大面积缺货,至此人们开始怀疑Kindle是否将要退出中国市场。尽管官方出来辟谣称其只是库存卖完,并且要精简销售渠道,但这就是事实么?直至近日官方宣布Kindle将退出中国市场,这个消息也让我们意识到,所谓的精简销售渠道是直接将中国市场整体“精简”了吧……02 Kindle退出市场乃是大势所趋从“阅读神器”到“泡面伴侣”,九年的时间,Kindle到底败在了哪里?大势所趋,优胜劣汰虽说Kindle退出让人唏嘘不已,但其退出不仅仅是产品本身的问题,更重要的是电子阅读器逐渐落伍时代的结果。随着智能手机的普及和软件开发技术的不断突破,越来越多的阅读软件上架,各类短视频、有声书等的出现也逐渐打破单一文字形式的阅读模式,用户的注意力逐渐被各种内容产品争夺,阅读模式逐渐多元,Kindle的优势也被一一击破。据相关报告显示,2020年中国成年国民数字化阅读方式的接触率为79.4%,2020年,有76.7%的成年国民进行过手机阅读,27.2%的成年国民在电子阅读器上阅读。从时长上来看,人均每天手机接触时长,达100.75分钟,而人均每天电子阅读器阅读时长,仅11.44分钟。Kindle项目早期负责人史蒂夫曾说:“我们希望,你在马路上想到一本书,然后就可以在60秒时间里获得这本书。”诚然,在那个年代Kindle固然是成功的,然而在互联网和智能化设备更为发达的现在,人们有了更好的选择,甚至更为省钱省时。因此,Kindle的退出乃是大势所趋,是市场优胜劣汰的结果。上层建筑影响战略布局前面说过2018年是Kindle的转折点,也就是从2018年开始,Kindle销量逐渐下滑,在这种状态下,正常思路应该是找到问题,对症下药,可亚马逊似乎并不这么想。2019年,亚马逊电商业务宣布退出中国市场,国内仅剩Kindle电子书和跨境电商业务。这对Kindle的发展可谓是雪上加霜。据公开数据显示,2021年,中国亚马逊海外购成为亚马逊全球海外购业务第一大站点,销售额达2015年的九倍多,创历史新高。不久前,亚马逊发布了2022财年第一财季报告,第一上海证券对其分析认为,报告期内,公司电商业务增速放缓,但跨境电商和云计算服务订单规模稳健增长。我们不难发现,亚马逊的重心正在发生转移。人们都说经济基础决定上层建筑,可没有上层建筑的支持与布局,在市场竞争如此激烈的情况下,产品衰败是必然的。03 Kindle退了,数字化阅读仍高歌猛进在首届全民阅读大会上,数字阅读分论坛暨第八届数字阅读年会发布了《2021年度中国数字阅读报告》,报告显示2021年,我国数字阅读用户规模为5.06亿,相比2020年增长了2.49%;我国数字阅读行业整体营收规模达415.7亿元,增长率达18.2%。由此可看,我国数字阅读行业市场展现出了巨大的潜力。艾媒咨询CEO张毅也表示,以电子阅读器为入口,背后是一整条生态链,甚至可以延伸到影视、游戏乃至IP乐园等领域,数字阅读行业充满着巨大可能。早在之前Kindle红极一时时,国内众多厂商就已经进入到电子书阅读器赛道。除了诸如汉王、翰林、易博士等传统硬件厂商,掌阅、阅文、小米等软件厂商也纷纷推出了自己的阅读器,比如掌阅的iReader、文石的BOOX系列,小米的多看阅读器,以及华为推出的MatePad Paper等等。相较于Kindle,国内厂商能更有效、更精准的了解到国内用户的阅读习惯和使用习惯,更能契合用户需求。线上阅读app更是层出不穷,迄今为止,我国开发出的阅读app有微信读书,多看阅读、网易蜗牛读书、豆瓣阅读、掌阅阅读等等。此外,随着短视频、有声书的发展,阅读的定义因为阅读对象的夸大而逐渐广泛,并非只有读书才能称得上是阅读,像微信订阅号、新闻、有声书等,阅读视听说一体化逐渐成为趋势,将阅读局限在出版书籍的Kindle自然跟不上时代的发展。商务部新闻发言人表示,中国作为快速发展的全球第二大消费市场,产品和服务的更新迭代速度很快。对于包括外资企业在内的各类市场主体而言,根据市场发展情况调整产品和服务,属于市场经济中的正常现象。Kindle的退出意味着它并没有跟上中国的发展速度,但同时也意味着数字阅读市场将有一大块蛋糕剩余,谁又能突破重围,成为新的王者呢?咱们还需静静等待。(本文首发钛媒体APP)资料来源:北京科技报、极客公园、中国新闻周刊、人人都是产品经理、观察者网更多精彩内容,关注钛媒体微信号(ID:taimeiti),或者下载钛媒体App返回搜狐,查看更多责任编辑: Source

How Spotify is responding to Joe Rogan podcast, COVID misinformation

As musicians leave Spotify, the streaming service plans to add content advisories before podcasts discuss COVID-19.

Just the FAQs, USA TODAY

As the U.S. inches up to a 64% vaccination rate for the entire population, only 42% of those eligible for a booster have gotten the extra shot, and experts aren’t sure what will move the needle, so to speak.

Perhaps this will win over some converts:

Fully vaccinated Americans are 14 times less likely to die of COVID-19 than those who haven’t gotten the shots. Boosted Americans are 97 times less likely.

Those were the figures presented Wednesday by Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, based on reports from 25 jurisdictions in the week ending Dec. 4. For every 100,000 people, 9.7 of those who were unvaccinated were killed by the coronavirus, compared to 0.7 of those fully vaccinated and 0.1 of the boosted.

She said more recent information during the omicron wave further underscores the value of getting boosted, prompting Dr. Anthony Fauci to say, “The data are really stunningly obvious why a booster is really very important.’’

They spoke at a briefing by the White House COVID-19 response team, during which Walensky confirmed the omicron surge is abating, with new infections nationwide down 36% to a daily average of 446,000 compared to the previous week, and hospitalizations dropping 14% to 17,100. Those are still stunningly high numbers, though, and deaths have risen 4% to 2,300 a day.

“With the mixed news above, similar to other waves throughout the pandemic, our data continue to reinforce the critical importance of vaccination,’’ Walensky said.

That also applies to those who are pregnant or couples who may want to conceive in the future. Fauci highlighted two recent studies that showed vaccination had no impact on fertility, which actually diminished temporarily among males infected with the virus.

“New data adds to previous studies that indicate the COVID-19 vaccination does not negatively impact fertility,’’ Fauci said. “And of course, as we’ve all said over and over again, vaccination is recommended for people who are trying to get pregnant now or might become pregnant in the future, as well as their partners.’’

For many who are already parents, news that their children under age 5 may become eligible for the vaccine by the end of this month could relieve concerns about their exposure to the virus.

Response team coordinator Jeff Zients said about 18 million children in that age group would qualify once the Food and Drug Administration and the CDC give their OK, adding that the administration is already working on distribution plans for the low-dose vaccine.

“We’ll be ready to start getting shots in arms soon after FDA and CDC make their decisions,’’ Zients said.

Also in the news:

►The Food and Drug Administration said its vaccine advisory committee will have a virtual meeting Feb. 15 to discuss Pfizer-BioNTech’s request for an emergency use authorization of its COVID-19 vaccine for children ages 6 months through 4 years. The companies applied for the EUA on Tuesday, and if cleared the shots could be available as soon as late February.

►The breakthrough mRNA technology used in the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines is being employed for the first time in human clinical trials designed to develop an HIV vaccine, the Washington Post reports.

►Tonga entered a lockdown Wednesday evening after finding coronavirus infections in two port workers helping distribute aid arriving in the Pacific island nation after a volcanic eruption and tsunami.

►India Arie and Graham Nash have joined the list of musicians asking that their music be removed from Spotify following Neil Young’s protest over podcaster Joe Rogan spreading false information about vaccines on the platform.

Today’s numbers: The U.S. has recorded more than 75 million confirmed COVID-19 cases and 893,000 deaths, according to Johns Hopkins University data. Global totals: More than 383 million cases and over 5.6 million deaths. More than 212 million Americans – 63.9% – are fully vaccinated, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

What we’re reading: The national debt surpassed $30 trillion for the first time Tuesday, fueled in part by the coronavirus pandemic and what economists describe as years of unsustainable government spending that could have long-term consequences for every American.

Even though infections from the omicron variant are decreasing across the country, the CDC’s national ensemble forecast predicts the U.S. will reach 933,000 to 965,000 COVID deaths by Feb. 26, the higher figure being nearly 75,000 more than the current total.

That’s in part because deaths from the coronavirus typically lag infections by about three weeks, and the nation experienced an unprecedented spike in cases in January.

The weekly ensemble, a compilation of predictions from diverse sources that the CDC says has been “among the most reliable forecasts in performance over time,” envisions a stable or uncertain trend in the number of fatalities reported over the rest of the month.

Army to start discharging unvaccinated soldiers 

The Army will immediately begin discharging soldiers who refuse to be vaccinated against COVID-19. 

Under a directive issued by Secretary of the Army Christine Wormuth, commanders are to initiate “involuntary administrative separation proceedings” against unvaccinated soldiers with no approved or pending exemption request, the Pentagon said in a statement Wednesday. The order applies to regular Army, reservists and cadets.

“Army readiness depends on Soldiers who are prepared to train, deploy, fight and win our nation’s wars,” Wormuth said in a statement. “Unvaccinated Soldiers present risk to the force and jeopardize readiness.”

Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin in August ordered vaccination for every service member. The Army has not yet involuntarily separated any soldiers for failing to get vaccinated. The Navy announced it would begin discharging unvaccinated members in December; the Air Force began letting go of unvaccinated people that same month.

More than 100 people have joined a lawsuit against New Orleans’ mayor and health director over COVID-19 restrictions recently extended to Mardi Gras parades and other events leading up to Fat Tuesday on March 1.

The 2020 festival was recognized afterward as a super spreader that turned New Orleans into an early pandemic hot spot. Last year, parades were canceled and bars were shuttered. This month, masks are required in bars, restaurants and other public spaces. And children as young as 5 must show proof of vaccination or a recent negative test for the virus to get into indoor public areas.

The lawsuit against Mayor LaToya Cantrell and health director Jennifer Avegno targets mask and vaccination mandates. City Hall spokesman Beau Tidwell said the city normally doesn’t publicly respond to litigation.

 “However, in this case I think it’s worth noting that the guidelines that we put in place saved lives, full stop,” Tidwell said. “The vaccine mandate and the mask requirements are going to remain in place throughout Mardi Gras.”

Contrary to scientific evidence and warnings from health agencies, hundreds of doctors nationwide continue to prescribe ivermectin – encouraged by a little-known national group of physicians – to prevent and treat COVID-19. Many of the doctors follow treatment guidelines set by an organization called the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance, which promotes the controversial drug along with other unproven therapies. The group’s protocol is a laundry list of ivermectin and other prescription drugs, over-the-counter medications, vitamin supplements and herbs, none of which have been scientifically proven to work against COVID-19. Read more here.

“There’s a group of physicians who will abandon the science in order to satisfy the unscientific demands of patients,” said Dr. Gregory Poland, professor of medicine and infectious diseases and director of the Mayo Clinic’s Vaccine Research Group. “It’s disinformation. You’re failing to use proven therapies in favor of disproven therapies, and that’s wrong.”

Although overall child COVID-19 case counts are on their way down in the United States, the January numbers were 3.5 times higher with the omicron variant than what was seen with the previous delta surge, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics. The increase in cases has resulted in more pediatric hospitalizations and the rise of a dangerous disorder called MIS-C, or Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children. MIS-C, a condition leading to inflammation in the body affecting organs such as the heart and lungs, occurs about four weeks after infection and can cause high fever, rash, and in some children, other serious health outcomes. 

Dr. John Vanchiere, president of the Louisiana Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics, said about 6,000 cases of MIS-C have been documented nationwide

“Their whole immune system is really turned on inappropriately,” Vanchiere said. “That inflammation can have long-term effects on the heart and particularly the coronary arteries. We’re worried about that.”

Even before the pandemic, advocates and health experts had warned of loneliness and social isolation among the nation’s older adult population. Now, nearly two years in, they say government mandates and precautionary measures meant to control the virus by limiting social interaction have taken an emotional, mental and physical toll. Geriatric workers say rates of depression and anxiety have risen among their clients in that time. In more severe cases, those conditions have led to cognitive and physical deterioration, or worse.

“People experienced cognitive decline from having no stimulation, and that has persisted,” said Stacey Malcolmson, Senior Source president and CEO. “For those with underlying mental health conditions like dementia or Alzheimer’s, we’ve been finding that that cognitive decline is irreversible.”

A Michigan woman who previously owned a home health agency that was never operational during the pandemic received $37,657 in federal funds designated for the medical treatment and care of COVID-19 patients, the Department of Justice said. The woman pleaded guilty Tuesday in the Eastern District of Michigan to stealing government funds and using them for her own personal expenses. She previously owned 1 on 1 Home Health in LaPorte, Indiana, which she had closed in early 2020.

The woman was indicted in February of last year in the first criminal charges for the intentional misuse of funds distributed from the CARES Act Provider Relief Fund.
