Google is announcing new features for Feed, the stream of articles and content that populates the space formerly known as Google Now. Announced in December, the Feed is meant to provide a similar experience to Facebook’s – and, to a lesser to extent, Twitter’s – newsfeeds. More and more people consume all their daily news and entertainment through social apps, frequently eschewing Google’s search pages entirely.
A Samsung executive told Korean media that the Galaxy Note 8 would be unveiled in the second half of August in New York. The report, published by the Investor, comes after a string of contradictory rumors regarding the release date of Samsung’s Next Big Thing. While some early stories suggested Samsung would release the Galaxy Note 8 in the second half of August, the respected Evan Blass reported that the Note 8 would launch in the second part of September.
Amazon Prime Day (we should really call it Prime Days though) is officially over, but that doesn’t mean you need to wait for Black Friday to get some decent discounts on tech products. The fact is, some products that were supposed to be discounted on July 11 only are still available at lowered prices. Then we have some new deals, some deals that just happened to go live around Prime Day and are still valid, and some deals that Amazon competitors put up to steal its Prime Day’s thunder.
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".
