We're seeing discounts on new iPads on almost a weekly basis, with Staples serving up the latest deal: $50 off the new 10.5-inch iPad Pro in both 64GB and 256GB configurations (and all colors), bringing their prices to $599 and $699 respectively. The offer expires Saturday, July 29. Last week Best Buy had some nice discounts on the iPad Mini 4 and the new entry-level 32GB iPad -- it had it for $280 for its Black Friday in July sale.
Perhaps you've accidently left your iPhone in the sun and returned to find it inoperable with the "Your iPhone needs to cool down before you can use it" message plastered on its screen. Or the opposite: It shut down because it was frozen. Whatever the case, iPhones -- and smartphones in general -- don't do well in extreme conditions. Which is where the Phoozy ($30) comes in.
Apple's new 9.7-inch iPad, which we thought was a good deal at $329 for the 32GB version, gets frequently discounted to $300 at various online stores. But Best Buy has it for $280 as part of its one-day "Cyber Monday in July" sale. The 128GB version, usually $430, is $380. Best Buy also has the 128GB iPad 4 on sale for $300. That's not bad -- it's normally $399 -- but a few days ago it was on sale for $275. We expect iPad sales to continue.
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".
