Active noise cancelling headphones like the Bose QC35’s and QC25’s before them have basically been running the game when it comes to Bluetooth headphones. And now competitors like Sony have taken everyone by surprise with their own pair of great ANC headphones like the WH-1000XM2 (us included). But there’s one company that’s been mysteriously absent from the conversation: Beats by Dre. At least until now. The company wants a piece of the pie and have released the Beats Studio3 Wireless headphones.
Nowadays it seems like every Bluetooth speaker is the same. A box small enough to throw in your bag with some sort of water-resistant certification. Don’t get me wrong those have their place, but where’s the innovation? Where are the crazy ideas taking the concept of a Bluetooth speaker to places it hasn’t been before? Say hello to the Monster Solara, a crazy Bluetooth speaker that I love. But let’s just get this out of the way right now, it isn’t for everyone.
The end of an era is upon us. According to an article from Billboard Best Buy and Target are making plans to stop selling CD’s in their stores. With the popularity of music streaming services like Spotify, Apple Music, and Tidal exploding over the past few years, the aisles dedicated to CD’s in stores have been a steady decline in the US. Rumor has it that Best Buy will stop carrying CD’s in store on July 1st, 2018, so make sure to go pick up a copy of your favorite album before then.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
