LONDON， Aug. 31 (Xinhua) -- A Hungarian tourist was exploring mountains near the Swiss town of Gimmelwald when he got lost. Fortunately， a black-and-white cat appeared and led him back to his hostel， the Daily Mail reported Tuesday.
"It was the end of the ski season when I got to (the alpine village of) Lauterbrunnen， so the lifts weren't working and some of the trails were closed. So I followed a roundabout trail up the mountain， and then followed those ski lifts further， eventually getting to the top， where I decided to follow a train track into the middle of a totally empty town， Gimmelwald，" said the man， who called himself sc4s2cg on Reddit.
"I was checking my map to see how I could get back to the hostel， and the only official way down was through a trail that was closed. That's how I met that handsome cat， who noticed me as I was eating a snack and resting my sprained ankle，" he wrote on Reddit.
"As soon as I got up she started guiding me along some path... She kept looking at me to follow and led me straight to the path that would take me back down to the valley."
The man then shared his video of the cat. Other tourists who had climbed the mountain also shared photos of their own experiences with the feline guide.
The cat turned out to be owned by a couple who run a nearby hostel and it regularly joined travelers at the mountain.
BEIJING [url= http://www.cheapjerseysleic...]Wholesale Wes Morgan Jersey[/url] , Jan. 30 (Xinhua) -- Booking a taxi, ordering food, reading the news, watching movies and playing games -- the seemingly infinite number of apps on the Chinese market, gives the illusion of an open, competitive market.
However, the plethora of apps notwithstanding [url= http://www.cheapjerseysleic...]Wholesale Shinji Okazaki Jersey[/url] , experts warn that the majority of apps on the market are BAT- (Baidu, Alibaba and Tencent) run services.
According to Analysis International, all but one of September's ten most downloaded apps were BAT products. In fact, Sogou Typewriting, the only exception, later received investment from Tencent.
Industry insiders said that BAT's rapid mergers and acquisitions have left startups with little room to compete.
Concerns have been raised over whether innovation and user's rights may both fall by the wayside as the Internet behemoths become too big to fail.
For example, links to products on Alibaba's Taobao cannot be opened within Tencent's WeChat, China's most popular instant messaging app. Instead, the address has to be laboriously hand typed as both companies have walled off information sharing.
JD, another online shopping portal, refuses to list Alibaba's hugely popular Alipay among its payment options. So, the "one wallet for all" does not live up to expectation. < The BAT giants are also cornering startups [url= http://www.cheapjerseysleic...]Wholesale Robert Huth Jersey[/url] , aggressively buying them or bullying them into submission.
Liu Nan, the creator of mother & child product platform Miyabaobei,said that a leading B2C online shopping platform, which she declined to name, once said to her: "Either you accept our investment or we'll make you feel the pressure."
"Small companies want to be seen, which is impossible without support from the leading Internet giants. They will not get any Internet traffic if they don't host adds on the most visited sites," said Chen Yan [url= http://www.cheapjerseysleic...]Wholesale Riyad Mahrez Jersey[/url] , general manager of Guangzhou Wolf Information Technology Co. Ltd.
When Alibaba and the State Administration for Industry and Commerce (SAIC) butted heads on Wednesday, it highlighted the risks associated with companies that wield too much power.
The SAIC had several meetings with Alibaba's Taobao over it selling counterfeit goods, but little came of the talks, an SAIC official who requested anonymity, told Xinhua.
Although the public are split over the issue, it is clear that government intervention needs to be better defined.
"What the government can do is to maintain a fair and open market while stepping up law enforcement and supervision," said Yi Peng [url= http://www.cheapjerseysleic...]Wholesale Nampalys Mendy Jersey[/url] , director-general of PanGoal, a public policy research Institution.
INNOVATION KEY TO SURVIVAL
However, others are more sympathetic toward industry leaders like BAT. They argue that the current oligopoly, if any, was only temporary and that today's market leaders may fall out of favor with customers.
"Through years of industry observation, it is not uncommon for Internet companies to die out," said Chen Ou [url= http://www.cheapjerseysleic...]Wholesale Matty James Jersey[/url] , CEO of China's leading online cosmetics store, Jumei. "For survival, companies must be innovative and unique."
"In the digital age, three to five years is a huge amount of time. There is not a single moment when the big players are not worrying about their future," said He Shixiang, vice general manager of the telecommunication, media and technology (TMT) investment arm of Fortune Capital.
