Google believes that its Chrome OS should be right there in the conversation with Windows 10 and MacOS when it comes to choosing an operating system. This is especially true in the enterprise realm, where the company's ambitions with G Suite and Google Cloud align nicely with the premise of Chrome OS — security, ease of use and maximum control for administrators. Chrome OS is sometimes thought of as a glorified browser, but there are a lot more capabilities to what the system can do.
Microsoft's effort to make Windows 10 best buddies with your smartphone is taking another leap forward. The company's newest efforts better link your phone to your PC in ways that previously were most prominent with Macs and iPhones. The goodies come courtesy of Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 16251, which is now available for those on the fast ring of the test program. The rollout will allow those who want to live on the edge a chance to try it out before it hits the mainstream.
Serverless computing, a highly scalable cloud-based computing model, sounds like an oxymoron. Businesses small and large have come to terms with the benefits and near-necessity of moving storage infrastructure to the cloud. The most popular model – offered by major companies such as Amazon, Microsoft and Google – is to rent out server space in exchange for cheaper costs and artificial intelligence insights.
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".
