Sure, the world seems to have moved on to two-in-one convertibles like the Microsoft Surface or more recent additions like Asus’ tablet-cum-laptop called ZenBook Flip S.But what you if only wanted a plain, old tablet? You know, since you already have a laptop or if you just wanted to replace that crummy old tablet of a few years ago? If you’re of the Android persuasion, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 launched in Singapore a few months ago is probably what you’re looking for.
Google booted up its cloud platform for enterprise customers in Southeast Asia last week in Singapore, as it sought to gain a foothold in a region where rivals have had a head-start. The Republic became the latest Google Cloud Platform “region”, with the new cloud service promising lower latency for customers seeking to deploy new, more demanding online services.
Many two-in-one convertibles that try to be both a laptop and a tablet often are a master of neither. For the convenience of holding a single device on the go, users have to contend with things like a bulky frame. Enter the Asus ZenBook Flip S. The thinnest in its class now at 1.09cm, the flip-around device launched last week at Computex in Taipei is the best looking one yet for such convertibles. The svelte 1.1kg frame helps a lot, as I found during a quick hands-on at the Asus booth last week.
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".
