If you’re a resident of South Africa then you’re likely aware of OLX or the more venerable Gumtree. The next company to step into this space locally is one you might have heard of as well: Facebook. That’s correct, Facebook is now launching Facebook Marketplace for South Africa. Users will soon have an icon on their apps which will taken them through to a community marketplace where sellers can list new and second-hand goods for sale. And then other people can come along and buy them.
All right PS fanboys, we’ve got just the shoe for you. This is the Nike PG2, designed with NBA player Paul George in mind and based on the Sony PlayStation. As if the logo on the tongue of one of the shoes wasn’t enough of a hint. The logo, as well as Paul George’s own logo on the other foot, lights up in blue but this can be turned off if you’re actually trying to keep a low profile.
Just when you thought everything was completely normal, Nintendo has to come along and throw a fun-sized spanner into the works. The Japanese gaming giant has announced and detailed Nintendo Labo, a product we’re still not sure how to pronounce properly which looks like… an awful lot of fun, once you can wrap your head around it. Nintendo Labo is, basically, a whole mess of cardboard sheets, rubber bands and bits of string and things which combine to form what the company calls Toy-Cons.
I dunno if this is such a great idea. The Switch is awfully easy to throw as it is. Who am I kidding, though, I’ll probably play it and just curse the Capra Demon for weeks https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TZQ-_5rqjZA
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".
