Black Friday is upon us, and there’s no better to kick things off than with a massive discount on what is already a product of excellent value. Check out the Samsung MU7000 series TV. It’s such good value that we gave it the 2017 Trusted Reviews award for Best Value TV. And now Amazon has only gone and cut the price of the 49-inch version from £1190 to £756. That’s a discount of £434, or 36% off.
IMAX has built its first virtual reality centre in the UK. It will be a part of the Odeon multiplex cinema in Manchester’s Trafford Centre. We’re no strangers to VR, having tested the HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and PlayStation VR – but this is the first time anyone in the UK has come up with a venue dedicated to virtual reality. Ahead of the public opening, I went to Manchester to see for myself what IMAX VR is all about.
If you’re looking for a new TV and were considering buying LG, this is the page you need. Here’s a comprehensive list of the key models, along with their features and prices – from the top-end 4K OLEDs to more bog-standard LED LCD sets. I’ll get into the differences below, but first, here’s LG’s 2017 TV lineup in full. Skip past if you just want to get to the model explanations and product reviews.
@james305green@raywand@trustedreviews@LGUK I'd be really interested to hear from people who bought an OLED three years ago, see what they look like now. Sadly reviewers like myself don't get to keep TVs for more than a few weeks' testing, and even if we did we'd have no space!
@james305green@raywand@trustedreviews@LGUK I did about 3-4 hours' gaming a day for a week testing the LG G7 and it was fine. But the image did change every 20 mins when a level ended. If you intend to have truly static images for ages, then for sure Samsung wins for peace of mind.
@james305green@raywand@trustedreviews@LGUK 2/2 I get some moving images have static elements, like games have HUDs. But surely your image will move to a menu or screensaver within several hours. I haven't tried sitting on rolling news for days, as that's silly. Still, LG could inspire confidence with a guarantee of sorts.
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".
