They came to see a Semi truck. But they left talking about a Roadster. That about sums up Tesla’s press event Thursday evening at Hawthorne Airport in California. From Semi to Roadster, and a collective display of automotive technology that was pretty darn close to amazing. Together, the debuts represented a fascinating pairing of beauty and beast, one designed to showcase the spectrum of possibilities that come with electric propulsion and autonomous driving. How fast?
With all the hubbub about mobile technology replacing dealerships, you would think that parts of the experience, like pre-purchase test-drives and delivery walk-arounds, were fading into relics of the past. Not so. It turns out car buyers really do need dealership salespeople, after all. At least that’s according to findings from the just-released J.D. Power and Associates U.S. Sales Satisfaction Index Study, an annual deep-dive into what makes for a satisfactory new vehicle sales experience.
Mazda announced Wednesday that it will debut a revised 2018 Mazda6 at the upcoming Los Angeles Auto Show, featuring several notable changes to the styling and power of the sedan. It will mark the third incremental batch of changes made to the Mazda6 since the last full refresh in 2012. This time, the automaker brings new power and performance technology, along with subtle design changes to the interior and exterior. But let’s not waste time talking about grilles and vents, shall we?
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".
