Don’t be fooled by the deep discounts on Jawbone’s fitness bands at retailers such as Amazon and Best Buy. Jawbone is going out of business. So even though you can find each generation of Jawbone’s UP fitness tracker for as low as $49, that appealing price simply isn’t worth it since there won’t be any company left to provide support.

When you think about it, every day is Emoji Day. But July 17 is apparently more about emjois than most days, as somebody somewhere has declared it World Emoji Day. To celebrate, Apple just previewed some of the new emoji coming to your iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple Watch this fall. Some are serious. Some are weird. None of them are redheads. My prayers go unanswered. Apple’s new emoji are based on Unicode 10, the latest version of the emoticon standard approved in late June by the Unicode Consortium.
Fitbit’'s ultrabasic $99 pedometer is a winner on every front. First of all, the 1.89 x 0.76 x 0.38-inch device is subtle — so subtle that no one will see it on you, because you clip the One to your clothing (pocket, belt or bra) instead of strapping it to your wrist. At night, the sensor can be inserted into a soft cloth wristband that you wear to track your sleep.
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".
