Last year Huawei surprised us with their first Windows 10 device; a 2-in-1 tablet PC called the Huawei MateBook. This year, Huawei has 3 new MateBooks! The MateBook X and D are both regular laptops, while the MateBook E is another 2-in-1 tablet PC. Today, we’re going to take a look at the MateBook X, which is Huawei’s ultra-light and extremely thin notebook PC.
You may have heard that Windows Live Hotmail Wave 4 has started to become available to its users, but you probably haven’t heard about the new Windows Live Home features. Home.Live.com both on the desktop and mobile device are now able to aggregate your social network feeds from both Facebook and MySpace. Previously, it would only show updates from Windows Live users who you were friends with and who chose to share their Facebook/MySpace updates via Windows Live. Now it takes over completely.
Two years ago I wrote about why USB-C isn’t good enough based simply on its poor interface design and lack of forward-thinking connection properties. (TLDR; a circular or magnetic interface would have been so much better.) That was back when USB-C just started showing up as the supposed new standard for universal serial bus peripherals and wired connectivity. Today, manufacturers are getting a lot of flak for not including USB-C ports.
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".
