如何在Kindle上订阅/取消订阅《纽约时报》

Sunday, March 25th, 2012

据我有限的所知,《纽约时报》的kindle版,只能在kindle上联网订阅。

一、订阅前的准备:

1、首先,你要成为amazon.com的注册用户。

2、其次,你必须有能否支付美元的信用卡(visa/master),双币单币都无所谓。

3、再次,你的信用卡必须到amazon.com上跟你的帐户关联。gift card不能用来订阅报刊,只能用来买书。

二、在kindle上订阅《纽约时报》

1、首先,你的kindle(kindle3, kindle4, kindle dxg)要先联网。(顺便介绍一下,Kindle截屏,只需要同时按住Shift+Alt+G,shift就是那个向上的箭头,然后连上电脑,在documents文件夹里找到gif格式的文件就是。)

2、按kindle的menu,进入Kindle storefront(或者叫kindle store,每个设备可能都不一样,我是按照我的kindle dxg的叫法)

3、进入kindle store后,看到如下界面。

4、点newspaper进去,如果订阅杂志就选magazine,选择–north america

5、找到纽约时报,点之。

6、进入订阅界面。(因为我已经订阅了纽约时报,所以选了另外一份报纸作演示)。纽约时报订阅价是每个月19.99美元,可以免费试看14天(也需要信用卡订阅,知识14天内取消订阅不扣款。但一个amazon帐户只能享受一次试订。)

7、好了,《纽约时报》已经订好,每天美国东部时间早晨9点,北京时间21点,将会推送到你的kindle上。

8、还有一个好消息,如果你已经是《纽约时报》Kindle版的订户,你可以无限制地访问nytimes.com,不受每月免费访问10次的限制。具体访问办法,请参考这篇官方Q&A

三、如何退订Kindle版《纽约时报》

1、退订报刊不能在Kindle上完成,这叫上贼船容易下贼船难。必须去Amazon的网站。

2、进入Amazon.com后,登陆进入My account.

3、Amazon的导航比较乱,要找到你订阅的电子版,要从Digital Content这里进入,点Manage your kindle见下图。

4、这样就可以看到你订过的报刊,进入纽约时报,找到下拉菜单,选择取消订阅。(成功的话,会有提示。)

同样的办法,可以订阅/退订其它Kindle版报刊。

My tumblr is back

Wednesday, January 4th, 2012

As a Chinese blogger, accidents are essential parts of the virtual life. Your ip could be blocked. You DNS could be contemplated. Your registry could be terminated without prior notification. And the server running your blog could be unplugged.

So, when someone told me that this blog could not be visited, I thought it was just another accident directed by the GFW—Chinese censorship machine. However, finally I had found that it’s unaccessible even penetrating the wall by using a paid VPN. Every time when I typed the url of this blog, I got this message:”Your Tumblr is suspended.”

I was greatly puzzled. According to the Term of Service of Tumblr, an account will be suspended when it publishes harmful materials such as pornography, racism and hatred contents etc. But I have never posted any entries like that. Why me?

There are several effective ways to learn the craft of English writing, among which the best method, I think, is writing complaint letters. The key element of writing well is not skill, but the impulse, the dire need of expressing yourself. I wrote a complaint email to support@tumblr.com. I got their reply very soon.

Hello Wang

There was a glitch on our end. My apologies. You may need to delete your cookies and cache but you should be able to access your blog now.

I did as they said. It does work.

I used a customized domain name on my tumblr account but the former ip became invalid due to the shift of server in Tumblr’s end. I changed the a-record of my domain name- wangpei.info and point it to a new ip which has not been blocked by GFW yet. And the whole world became normal again.
