Congratulations on installing Apple's new operating system for the iPhone, iOS 11. But before you run off into paradise with your newly updated smartphone, there are a few changes you might want to make. First, customize your new control center, as the new operating system gives users some more flexibility. To make adjustments, go to Settings, then to Control Center, and then to Customize Controls to add shortcuts to frequently used apps like the alarm clock or calculator.
From dense city centers to remote islands, Google has made an attempt to map the entire world at the street level. Now, the tech giant is improving those street views and it will be sending a new fleet of Google Street View cameras out into the world. The updated cameras have been streamlined, but come equipped with 20 megapixels behind each lens to provide sharper, more accurate images.
In February 2017, NASA Engineer Sidd Bikkannavar came back to the United States following a trip to Chile. He was detained by Customs and Border Protection and was commanded to hand over his smartphone and the password to it, without a warrant. He wasn't the only one who encountered this scenario, however. Now with the backing of the American Civil Liberties Union and the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Bikkannavar and 10 other people are suing CBP for illegal search of electronic devices.
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".
