There was only one TV we wanted last year: The LG Signature W7 Wallpaper OLED. Sadly, we couldn’t have it. Not only because we couldn’t afford it, but because LG opted not to bring it to South Africa. This year, it looks like the only obstacle to buying LG’s premium TVs and appliances will be our bank balance. The Korean electronics giant announced on Wednesday it’ll be offering its Signature OLED TVs, refrigerators, washing machines and air conditioners in South Africa for the first time.
Starting on Monday, 29 January, South African iPhone users will be able to pay for Apple Authorised screen replacements that’ll keep their smartphone’s warranty intact. Announcing the service on Thursday, Core Group added that the service will be available through iStores and Digicape nationwide.
Former FNB CEO and angel investor Michael Jordaan and former FNB executive Yatin Narsai have announced plans to launch an “app-driven bank” called Bank Zero before the end of 2018. Bank Zero won’t have any physical branches, though customers will be able to get physical cards for transacting at stores and at ATMs, and all communication and interaction with the bank will be done using digital channels, with a particular focus on mobile devices like smartphones and tablets.
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".
