On July 11, 2017, Microsoft dropped mainstream support for their last “Windows Phone” smartphone operating system; Windows Phone 8.1. While Windows 10 Mobile is still around and still supported, Windows Phone 8.1 was far more popular and far more widely used even a couple of years after Windows 10 Mobile’s release.
Last night I got to meet up with Vinnie Brown A.K.A. Vin Rock of Naughty By Nature. Vinnie is a big fan of Windows Mobile, and has done some sweet user interface customizations on his Touch Pro 2… which is part of a contest going on right now where a lucky winner can get the custom one-of-a-kind HTC Touch Pro 2 and two tickets to LA to see Naughty by Nature in concert.
Ever since I bought the JAMin I havn’t been able to get that song out of my head, but frankly, I’m mighty proud to be jammin’! The JAMin is the latest Pocket PC Phone from i-mate. It’s also known as the HTC Prophet, Qtek S200, XDA neo, Dopod 818pro, and will certainly take on a few other brands as other carriers pick it up. Read on to see what grounds this device is set to break! The i-mate JAMin is a lot like the original i-mate JAM (HTC Magician).
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
