The interminable presidential campaign is almost over! Just seven weeks left! Monday night's presidential debate marks the start of the home stretch in the race between Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and Republican nominee Donald Trump.

There are two important new things to know about Snapchat. First, it's just Snap now. That's easy enough. The second may be a little bit harder to process: The ephemeral chat mavens will sell video-grabbing sunglasses, called Spectacles, starting this fall.
The Flybrix team didn't set out to build an adorable DIY mini-drone out of Lego bricks. But as any road-tripper can tell you, sometimes the journey turns out to be more fun than the destination. Amir Hirsch has a masters from MIT. Robb Walters has a PhD from Cal Tech.
The Elsewhere headset looks like something an old-timey doctor might wear. A precursor to bifocals, maybe, or an early surgical microscope. The $50 pair of adjustable lenses clamp to your iPhone.

It's not easy to be in the printer and ink business these days. Revenue is down. Obsolescence looms. Knock-off cartridges are a cheap and easy alternative. HP's apparent solution? DRM. Great. Just to be clear, this isn't a solution for you. It's a solution for them.
It's hard to announce an action cam's availability the same week industry heavyweight GoPro shows of its latest. But while the GoPro Hero5 Black might own the hype right now, the Nikon KeyMission 360 looks a whole lot like the future.
If you use Dark Sky as their weather app of choice-or just happen to enjoy gloriously rendered maps of weather movement-you should be both gladdened and a little surprised to learn that it's now available in a new incarnation. Meet Dark Sky, the web site. It should look pretty familiar.
The latest iPhone has one of the best displays of any smartphone you can buy. That's always been true. What's interesting in 2016 is that Apple manages to be among best despite using LCD, a technology every other flagship has left behind. The Galaxy S7 and Note 7. The Nexus 6P.
Remember Pokémon Go? We were such nerds back then! Just kidding, we're still nerds. And even though you've left Pokemon Go behind along with your pogs and troll dolls and stone-washed jeans, reports of the app's decline are missing the point-along with hundreds of millions of dollars.
One generally approaches Leica as something to appreciate more than afford. And yet! The fancy photo company's latest, an adorable instant camera, is well within reach. The Leica Sofort may not be as feature-packed as, well, any serious camera, but it's not here to be serious.
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
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".
