我用的 Firefox 插件

写了一篇英文博客 [Sharing] My Favorite Firefox Add-ons 分享了我用的 Firefox 插件。简单罗列一下:

书签:Foxmarks Bookmark Synchronizer

检查邮件:WebMail Notifier

检查 blog/RSS feed:Google Reader Notifier or Google Reader Watcher

更好更方便的浏览:

更好的下载:

备份Firefox的这些插件:FEBE (Firefox Environment Backup Extension) 。好不容易辛辛苦苦找的这么多插件,最好备份一下,免得系统重装之后还得去下载安装。

爬墙(GFW: Great Fire Wall)用的:

其他小工具:

  • FoxClocks: 随意定制显示世界时钟。
  • Speed Dial: 一个有趣的软件,比较方便迅速访问某些网站。

貌似这俩 logo 图标有点像

貌似这俩 logo 图标有点像:

根据 Amazon.com – Wikipedia:

Since 2000, Amazon’s logotype is an arrow leading from A to Z, representing the desire to sell many products.

好吧。亚马逊的箭头从 a 到 z 好理解,那阿里妈妈的箭头从 a 又到 a 是什么意思呢?

Corporate Overview of Alibaba Group 这样介绍阿里妈妈:

Alimama is China’s leading online advertising exchange, which allows web publishers and advertisers to trade online advertising inventory. A wholly owned subsidiary of Alibaba Group, Alimama is designed to serve the more than one million small- and medium- sized websites in China which generate an estimated 80% of China’s website traffic. Alimama helps connects these web publishers to advertisers, allowing them to monetize their website traffic while offering advertisers an affordable way to reach highly targeted audience groups.

哦,我给阿里妈妈的箭头从 a 到 a 找到一个解释: advertising -> audience . 呵呵.

淘宝效应

大约半年前,2008年一月底,我发过一个贴,其实是转贴《淘宝-中国第二大综合卖场》,当时主要是有点惊讶于淘宝的规模:

  • 2007年淘宝网交易总额突破433.1亿元。淘宝这一数字仅次于百联集团(771亿元),跃升为中国第二大综合卖场。
  • 从2003年成立到2007年底销售额突破400亿元,淘宝仅用了4年多的时间;沃尔玛花费了29年时间才实现400亿美元销售额。
  • 形象点说,淘宝2007年的总交易额逼近联华超市全国3913家门店的2006年总成交额–440亿元,甚至逼近三大跨国零售巨头沃尔玛(150亿元)、家乐福(248亿元)和易初莲花(135亿元)在华销售额的总和

那时候跟一些朋友讨论起来,大家觉得规模大是一方面,但关键的问题是淘宝不仅不赚钱还是贴钱的,因为淘宝是靠不收卖家和买家的交易费用才做到这样规模的。如果一旦收费,大家肯定都不用了。所以433亿的销售额背后是亏损,是没有盈利的。

半年多过去了。期间在今年4月,淘宝开了淘宝商城,这不是C2C了,是B2C。

而最近在新浪看到了《IT经理世界》的一篇封面报道:淘宝效应。文章很长,侧重分析了开了淘宝商城之后的形势。

摘录一些如下:

噢……晕

见过桶,但从来没见过写这几个字的桶。

摄于2008年8月初的上海某地铁站:

手机也收到来自 10086 中国移动的广播短信,全文如下:
