The age of ridiculousness is upon us my friends, and it is fantastic. We’ve got a roadster from Tesla coming that goes zero to 60 mph in under two seconds, cars lapping the Nurburgring in under seven minutes, and Level 3 autonomous driving already here. Then you’ve got Devel giving us a supercar promising 5,000 horsepower. The craziest part about it is, that’s probably not even the wildest car that that company is trying to make. Enter the Devel Sixty.
When Ferrari shut down California T production it put the world on notice that the new Portofino was just around the corner. Earlier this week, the new grand touring vehicle Ferrari first unveiled in Frankfurt this September was officially launched in China. The California T was named for the West Coast vibe, with sunny skies and winding roads. The hard-top convertible was made to be put down, allowing drivers to soak up the sunshine during their daytime cruises.
There are all sorts of voice-activated artificial intelligence bots out there now. Whether it’s Alexa, Siri, Google, Bixby, or Cortana it seems like every company is doing its own thing. Mercedes is the latest to enter the fray with a virtual assistant for your car known as Ask Mercedes. Never mind the very German lack of creativity in naming the function, Mercedes' new service makes use of artificial intelligence for its chatbot which includes a few augmented reality functions.
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".
