Coke vs Pepsi. Marvel vs DC. Nintendo vs Sega. These are (or were) some of the more iconic rivalries between major corporations in recent memory. But they all pale in comparison to Apple vs Samsung. The two tech titans collectively sold 37 per cent of all smartphones globally in 2017 and combined to rake in US$111 billion in phone sales in just the last quarter alone, according to market analyst TrendForce. But while mobile handsets remain the main war, battles have spilled over into other arenas.
There are plenty of reasons to buy Samsung’s new Galaxy S9 (or the larger S9+ variant) if you’re using a phone released in 2016 or earlier. The S9’s screen is flawless and best in the industry; it’s got plenty of power, and has a sleek almost all-screen design that doesn’t shamelessly copy Apple’s notch. Whether you’re jumping from an iPhone 7 or Galaxy S7, LG V10 or OnePlus 3, the S9 will be a major upgrade. But for those who already own a top 2017 flagship, like a Galaxy Note 8, S8?
There's nothing more appalling to the savvy reader (or savvy journalist) than marketing departments throwing industry buzzwords around carelessly, and the worst offender may just be tech industry's current love affair with the term "A.I." Those initials have been so overused it's almost lost all meaning. Take Taiwan tech company Asus, for example, which recently slapped "A.I. " to every facet of a new phone. When Vlad Savov from The Verge questioned the legitimacy of these "A.I.
A year ago I (rightfully) thought iPhones were mediocre and iPad pro was trash as a work machine. But the X and ios 11 changed everything. Damn, I am now okay to use apple stuff without pulling my hair out again https://t.co/LdRliOg8yW
@ChrisSellery@tictoc@ivanramen Not hating on Ivan. Hating on Bloomberg for this dumb ass angle. White dudes can be ramen chefs. They can be profiled. But don't take a "lemme tell you how it's done" attitude.
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".
