Software as a Service is often the first step companies take into the cloud. But, today's cloud providers offer on-demand services for a wide range of business and IT functions. We've moved beyond SasS, PaaS, and IaaS into an 'Everything as a Service' or XaaS world. In their 2017 research report, Everything as a Service: Why companies are making the switch to SaaS, IaaS, PaaS, and more, Tech Pro Research (TechRepublic's sister site) outlined several trends in the "as-a-service" movement.
Although the iPhone X, the iPhone 8, and 8 Plus were definitely the highlights of Apple's Sept. 12 event, the company also announced updated versions of the Apple Watch and Apple TV. Thanks to several hardware and software improvements, both devices just got more useful for business professionals.
It's been a decade since I cracked open the original iPhone. And as Apple celebrated the phone's 10th anniversary in June 2017, it was only appropriate that we celebrate 10 years of taking them apart. Note: This video was originally published in June 2017 to coincide with the 10th anniversary of the iPhone. It took me three hours to crack open the original iPhone. It takes me less than 30 minutes these days. There were no special tools for taking them apart back then.
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".
