McCollum & Griggs LLC, a Kansas City law firm has put out a humorous clip featuring a voicemail they claim comes from West Coast SEO company. The guy, who the firm says is drunk (which does appear to be quite possible, based on the audio) claims to be from Microsoft. "We’re pretty sure this guy is not from Microsoft," Phil Singleton, CEO of Kanasas City Web Design, which handles the firm's site, tells WebProNews.
Tumblr has launched a new iPhone/iPad app for creating and sharing photosets. It's called, fittingly, Photoset. "Photosets have been one of our favorite additions to Tumblr," the company says in a blog post. "You’ve surprised us a thousand times over with your creativity. It’s hard to imagine Tumblr without photos, and we love the power a set of photos has to tell a story." "The new Photoset app is an elegant way to create photosets, even if you’re not using Tumblr," the company adds.
Last fall, I put together a list of 10 Great Modern Horror Scores You Can Stream On Spotify and promised 10 more. It may have taken me a fuck of a long time to get around to it, but here are 10 more that are more than worth putting in your ears. Darling has a very interesting score by Giona Ostinelli, which features a wide variety of auditory aesthetics. At times, it feels in the realm of John Harrison’s Creepshow, while at others it feels more reminiscent of 80s Carpenter.
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".
