Got the family on a T-Mobile One plan? You might be free to take your payment information off Netflix — T-Mobile can take it from here. The carrier’s latest promotion, Netflix On Us, is exactly what it sounds like. If you’ve got at least two lines on a T-Mobile One plan, you’ll soon be able to link your Netflix account to your T-Mobile account, with T-Mobile footing that $10 streaming bill.
Starting to get annoyed that Netflix seems content to drop Hollywood movies in exchange for their own originals? All of a sudden, Roku has a pretty good deal for you — free is usually a pretty good deal, right? Mostly known for their streaming set-top boxes and smart TV OS, Roku just announced their first streaming service. The Roku Channel will stream a bunch of older movies from a handful of studios, and it’ll be available to everyone for free with not even an account required.
LG won’t be revealing their new V30 smartphone until later this month, but they’ve slowly been sharing details about what we can expect when the big day comes. While LG’s G series is their flagship line, the V series is a bit more like the Galaxy Note — it takes all the premium features of the flagship, then adds a bit more (LG tends to focus on high-end video and audio features).
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".
