Raise your hand if, as a child, you've played with robot action figures and staged imaginary battles with them? I suspect there are quite a lot of hands raised -- from both genders. Chinese start-up GJS Robotics is made up of a team full of such people. They've spent the past couple of years manufacturing new-age "smart" robots that can be controlled via remotes, and with the GEIO, it's their most ambitious project yet.
When Max Wu came up with the idea of Vinci, a pair of smart headphones that had a fully functional Android operating system built-in, he "envisioned a computer that sits on your head." And the co-founder of the Beijing-based Inspero Inc. built and released just that last year: a set of bulky headphones that almost looked like it was sitting on the user's head.
While Xiaomi may still be known almost exclusively as a smartphone company outside of China and India, the Beijing-headquartered Chinese tech company has actually been spent the past three years aggressively expanding its scope, focusing on products that fit into what company vice president Wang Xiang told me earlier this year as "a connected eco-system of devices."
I just can’t get over how much of iOS is user unfriendly. Apple just being stubborn at this point by sticking to its guns regarding: no app drawer, trash one hand mode (aka Reachability) and dumb ass lock screen notifications management
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".
