Owning a BMW and wanting Apple CarPlay could become a bit more expensive next year. The German automaker will soon be charging owners $80 a year to access CarPlay in its vehicles with the first year free. Right now, access to CarPlay is a $300 option on 2017 BMWs equipped with in-car navigation. “This allows the customer to switch devices,” Don Smith, technology product manager for BMW North America, told The Verge during the 2018 Detroit Auto Show.
Hitting your local cars and coffee likely means seeing several variations of the same car – Corvettes, 991s, Mustangs, and various other staples. However, when something truly unique rolls in, it gathers a crowd of eager onlookers trying to get the best Instagram photo. One way to stand out from the crowd of beige is to check out this converted 1957 BMW Isetta that has been turned into a pickup truck.
After a vicious cold snap and more than one snow storm ravaging various parts of the U.S. the last few weeks, seeing a car skidded off into a ditch isn’t a rare occurrence. Sadly, it’s quite common. Deteriorating road conditions along with inexperienced drivers is a recipe for tow truck companies to make bank.
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".
