Sony have just announced that their ultra-portable MP-CD1 Mobile Projector is set to go on sale sometime in April. Fitting easily in the palm of your hand, the MP-CD1 can project media up to 120 inches in size from a distances of just 3.5 meters. There have been attempts at mobile projectors in the past, but it’s fair to say the Sony MP-CD1 Mobile Projector promises much more than anything that’s gone before it.
This Saturday it’s St Patrick’s Day. Bur rather than just suggest the best places to grab a Guinness this weekend – though we do have you covered there too! – we thought we’d offer up a little more culture to proceedings by offering up our favourite places to visit in Ireland for a long weekend. The Emerald Isle offers opportunities for both urban explorers and adventurous countrymen with vibrant cities, rolling hills and a stunning coastline.
The first trailer has dropped for what looks like could be the most bonkers movie of the year. Called ‘Sorry to Bother You’, Boots Riley’s vibrant satire follows Atlanta’s Lakeith Stanfield as a telemarketer who discovers the key to business success; speaking like a white man. Sorry to Bother You premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January and it’s fair to say it was a knockout success. The film takes place in an alternate present day version of Oakland with Stanfield playing Cassius Green.
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".
