After debuting its own smartwatch at Mobile World Congress in February, Verizon has discontinued the Wear24 after only three months. If you head over to the original announcement page and click on the Buy Now button, you’re redirected to their support page for the watch. It’s not in the store anymore and Verizon has confirmed that it’s been discontinued. That’s a shame, given the watch was only released this year and has had one of the shortest lifespans of any tech product I can remember.
Support for the Nexus 6P and the Nexus 5X was supposed to end in September 2018, but now it looks like these devices will get security patches beyond their original schedule. Both Nexus devices have had their fair share of problems since release, which Google seemingly acknowledged when it offered out-of-warranty Nexus 6P owners a Pixel as a replacement. After news of the replacement became widespread, Google changed the policy to no longer offer the replacement.
At launch, Google Home was a very bare bones assistant, but over time Google has been adding new features to the little speaker in an attempt to make it more competitive with Amazon’s Alexa. A new support page has revealed the ability to set reminders is coming to the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, and Canada for now. Google gives some specific examples of reminders you’ll be able to set, but makes note that location-based reminders aren’t supported yet.
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".
