The group also made up for over one-third of the tot

tal tourism consumption during the holidays in Fliggy, the online tourism platform of e-commerce giant Alibaba Gr

oup. Purchase of tourism products on Fliggy by people born after 2000 rose 500 percent on an annualized basis, it said.

der the age of three, soared by 77 percent from a year ago during the four-day vacation.

“The younger generation, especially those born after 1990 and 1995, are m

ore used to ‘fingertip’ consumption and are fast becoming disrupters in the e-com

merce sector,” said Yang Qin, a business analyst from market consultancy CBNData.

According to a report from CBNData, people born in the 1990s and 1995s surpassed those bor

Baidu came under fire in 2016 when Wei Zexi, a 21-year

old student from Xidian University in Shaanxi province, died from a rare cancer of the soft tissue. Wei was re

searching the disease on Baidu and came across an advertisement for treatments that proved ineffective.

After Wei’s death, Baidu announced a sweeping restructuring and optimization of its medical business, especially regardi

ng its paid listing practices. It also tightened regulations on medical promotion and enforced clear labeling rul

es that differentiate advertisements from credible medical information, according to media reports.

However, medical advertising remains one of the key sources of income for Baidu, and some are still trying to exploit the s

ystem. In April, the police in Shenzhen, Guangdong province, detained a team of medical fraudsters who drove up r

ankings on Baidu’s research results to promote faulty hospitals to patients, local authorities said.

Jobs liked that. Indeed the concept for the ad had a special resonance for him.

He fancied himself a rebel, and he liked to associate himself with the values of the

ragtag band of hackers and pirates he recruited to the Macintosh group. Even though

 

he had left the apple commune in Oregon to start the Apple corporation, he still wanted

to be viewed as a denizen of the counterculture rather than the corporate culture.

But he also realized, deep inside, that he had increasingly abandoned the hacker spirit.

Some might even accuse him of selling out. When Wozniak held true to the Homebrew

 

ethic by sharing his design for the Apple I for free, it was Jobs who insisted that they sell

the boards instead. He was also the one who, despite Wozniak’s reluctance, wanted to turn

Apple into a corporation and not freely distribute stock options to the friends who had been

in the garage with them. Now he was about to launch the Macintosh, a machine that violated

many of the principles of the hacker’s code: It was overpriced; it would have no slots, which

meant that hobbyists could not plug in their own expansion cards or jack into the motherboard

to add their own new functions; and it took special tools just to open the plastic case. It was

a closed and controlled system, like something designed by Big Brother rather than by a hacker.

So the “1984” ad was a way of reaffirming, to himself and to the world, his desired self-image.

The heroine, with a drawing of a Macintosh emblazoned on her pure white tank top, was a renegade

out to foil the establishment. By hiring Ridley Scott, fresh off the success of Blade Runner, as the

director, Jobs could attach himself and Apple to the cyberpunk ethos of the time. With the ad,

Apple could identify itself with the rebels and hackers

 

who thought differently,

and Jobs could reclaim

his right to identify

with them as well.
