San Francisco startup August Home is introducing a cheaper smart door lock to appeal to homeowners who balk at paying several hundred dollars for the ability to remotely secure their front door through a mobile phone. The company on Tuesday will begin selling a $149 version of the August Smart Lock, about $80 cheaper than its current product. The lock is priced below the $160 to $230 range of competing smart locks from far more well-known door lock makers like Kwikset and Schlage.
Kevin Durant has mastered the fine points of basketball, but the Golden State Warriors superstar learned a valuable lesson about technology this week when he tried to respond to haters on the Internet:Don’t try to fool the Twitterverse. Durant got caught hiding behind a fake Twitter account when he threw his former Oklahoma City Thunder coach and teammates under the bus on Tuesday and was forced to make a public apology.
The three-day Mobile World Congress Americas conference at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco this week drew 21,000 people, far short of the 25,000 to 30,000 expected by the convention’s co-sponsors, the wireless trade organizations GSMA and CTIA. It didn't help that most of the industry’s attention on the conference’s first day was on Apple revealing its iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus models.
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".
