Microsoft figures we all have a race car driver in us, and so it is fitting that Forza Motorsport 7 is the flagship title for the Xbox One X, Windows 10, and Xbox One gaming machines this fall. The game represents the high-end of racing graphics on Microsoft’s platforms and features more than 700 cars and 30 racing environments. On the Xbox One X and Windows, the new Forza will run in 4K resolutions with high dynamic range (HDR) lighting at 60 frames per second.
Forza Motorsport 7 is just a couple of weeks away from its launch, and fans of the billion-dollar racing franchise are looking forward to playing the series in 4K for the very first time. The title debuts on October 3 on the Xbox One and Windows 10, with crossplay enabled between the platforms. The deluxe edition will be out on September 29, and Microsoft showed me a final version of the game on an Xbox One X at a preview event.
Canadian tech company Nanoport has opened a new lab in Silicon Valley to develop next-generation mobile gear, including a new kind of touch-feedback, or haptic, technology that could be used in smartphones or game controllers. Tim Szeto, CEO and founder of Nanoport, said in an interview with VentureBeat that the new lab in Santa Clara, California, will grow to about 20 people and it will focus on research that is beyond the normal range of product development.
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".
