Even though non-convertible Android tablets have largely went out of style these past couple of years, Samsung seems to be gearing up for its third such 2017 release. Well, technically, the high-end Galaxy Tab S3 can seamlessly turn into a mini-laptop of sorts by using POGO pin connectors to attach to an extra-productive keyboard cover. That’s obviously not the case for a modest Tab A 8.0 (2017) version, and it probably won’t be for a mid-range Galaxy Tab Active 2 either.
For the first time in ages, Apple’s new mobile hardware lineup has been entirely unpredictable, especially in terms of branding and release dates. But even as total confusion floated around the name and early delivery of that fancy “all-screen” iPhone X, no one doubted the latest version of the company’s popular mobile software platform would arrive sometime before the end of September.
Apple isn’t quite done alienating potential budget-conscious buyers of new and old iDevices for the year. After deciding to charge an all-time high starting price of $999 for the iPhone X stateside, which predictably goes way up in markets like Russia, China or Australia, the always profit-focused tech giant also raised iPad Pro rates with absolutely no explanation.
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".
