The $399 Google Home Max that recently debuted seems to be causing some trouble with WiFi networks, but the problem may not be exclusive to Google Home Max devices. An initial report on the Google Product Forums describes an issue where the WiFi network went going down repeatedly upon asking the Home Max unit to stream music.
Verizon is making some changes to how its Total Mobile Protection plan works for the New Year, one of which is, unfortunately, a monthly price increase. The new change is across the board and effective for new customers and current customers at different dates. Starting on January 25, new customers who buy TMP will pay $13/month instead of the current price of $11.
Google has slowly but surely been working on improving the experience that Android TV provides, and with several manufacturers launching Android TVs this year, it makes sense that Android O would provide an entirely new experience. Android O for Android TV will include a complete redesign of the home screen, which has been a sticking point for a while. With the new screen, you’ll be able to access all your content with just a single click.
That mentality is why I much prefer indie games. Hollow Knight, Rain World, Stardew Valley, Cuphead, Divinity Original Sin I & II, these are all games that feel crafted with love that you just don't get from AAA games.
So @YahtzeeCroshaw sums up how I feel about AAA games. "I'm so sick of all this. I'm sick of playing AAA games that feel like they exist not because a creator had a vision of an idea which excited them, but because quarterly projections had to be met." https://t.co/w2EldcrAYL
Former Verizon lawyer and current head of the @FCC Ajit Pai doesn't see microtransactions as a model to hate. That's why he wants to monetize the internet the same way. We need #NetNeutrality to prevent this kind of thing from happening. https://t.co/rAsL3559LA
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".
