The ethereum thefts occurred after hackers uncovered a bug in the code of digital wallets ALAMYNearly $40m (£31m) was stolen last week in a series of attacks on ethereum, highlighting the dangers of investing in the suddenly popular — and erratic — cryptocurrency. The thefts occurred in quick succession after hackers uncovered a bug in the code of digital wallets created by Parity Technologies to hold ethereum tokens, or “ether”.
George Hotz believes his self-driving system will take 75% of the market, leaving Google’s sister company Waymo and Tesla to divide up the restThe future of the car industry can be found not in Detroit or at Tesla’s California mega- factory, but in a five-bedroom house in a sleepy neighbourhood across the bay in San Francisco. At least, that is what George Hotz, the first person to hack an iPhone, would have you believe.
Politics in America may be in a sorry state, but worry not — the techies are here to save the day. A pair of Silicon Valley billionaires — Reid Hoffman, co-founder of LinkedIn, and Mark Pincus, co-founder of online gaming giant Zynga — launched an organisation to shake up Trump’s Washington last week. The platform is called Win the Future, which gives it the apt abbreviation of WTF.
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".
