I never did end up getting the NES Classic Edition last Christmas season and before it was discontinued – what a debacle that was – but good news! As expected, Nintendo is set to add an SNES version to its classic consoles line later this month. The classic edition of Nintendo’s 16-bit console is another all-in-one unit, but this time it comes with two (!) wired controllers.
Okay, so let me take the Skee-Ball conversation a little bit further here. When I was a kid our church would host skating parties at the local United Skates of America roller rink. Cue my best Chandler Bing impression: “Could there be a better name for a place to roller-skate?” I think not. Let’s face it – I was short and clumsy, so the skating wasn’t really my thing. But playing the bank of Skee-Ball machines they had? That was a different story.
Oh man, I was so excited when I saw this come across my Twitter feed. Ramp Champ, one of the earliest and most beloved games for iOS, has been updated for the first time since 2010. And here I thought it was gone for good.If you like Skee-ball, you will love Ramp Champ. The new version has retina graphics and in-app purchases that allow you to pick up new ramps and more challenges.Ramp Champ is free on the App Store (with in-app purchases available).
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".
