Apple has a gorgeous "mid 2017" MacBook Pro with fresh and powerful specs available to buy right now — but if you like to save money, it might not be your best option. Me? I went for the 2016 model. And no, it's not a brand new, unsold 2016 MacBook Pro that Apple had left over. It's a previously used and refurbished unit I bought from Apple's little-known Refurbished Mac store.
Tech site BGR has obtained mock-up renders of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 8 from a third-party case manufacturer, which can give us an idea of what to expect before Samsung's announcement of the Note 8. Supposedly, the mock-ups are based on "genuine" leaked details and schematics. With that said, the mock-ups do seem to match what the rumor mill is saying about the Galaxy Note 8. You can check out the renders on BGR's website.
Smartphone maker OnePlus has began rolling out an update containing a fix for a very serious glitch on Thursday. On Tuesday, a OnePlus 5 owner complained on Reddit that his phone would reboot when he tried to call 911 to report a building fire nearby. The issue didn't appear to be widespread, as only a few reports of OnePlus 5 smartphones rebooting during a 911 call were recorded.
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".
