Google Fiber, for all intents and purposes, was a failure. For all the promise of Gigabit speeds nationwide, Google managed just to install its super fast internet in just 20 cities while burning through billions of dollars and numerous staffers â€” including two CEOs in just nine months. But even in failure, few things are black and white. Google may have failed as an ISP, but weâ€™ve all won â€” including Google.
Thereâ€™s nothing like staring down the barrel of multiple files you know youâ€™ll have to rename. Sure, there are batch file naming utilities in the App store â€” and Iâ€™ve used most of them â€” but until recently, I never knew the functionality I needed to rename multiple files was cooked right into macOS. And for those of you trying to jump ahead: no, Iâ€™m not talking about Automator. What Iâ€™m talking about is far simpler.
Adorned with wood, glass, and polished metal, Appleâ€™s new â€˜spaceshipâ€™ campus has an aesthetic straight out of a Jony Ive sketch. Itâ€™s high-tech and futuristic, and set to span 2.8-million square feet and house 13,000 employees â€” and perhaps some farm animals. In a recent drone fly-over video by Maverick Media, thereâ€™s clearly a team assembling a barn on the far corner of Appleâ€™s campus. But what is an old wooden barn doing on Appleâ€™s decidedly futuristic campus?
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".
