Did you ever watch those movies where special agents communicate with each other by putting an index finger up to the ear? I wasn’t always able to see a device, so I wondered what exactly they were using. Maybe it was something like this week’s featured crowdfunding project. ORII is unlike any other Bluetooth headset you have used. This is because it is technically not a headset; it is a ring.
Sunday is back and here at Android Authority we have yet another ‘Crowdfunding project of the week’ for you. This is where we highlight some of the hottest campaigns from sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo. Shall we jump right in? Have you been looking to get a digital assistant speaker? One of the best options is the Amazon Echo, but the fact that Alexa is open to manufacturers means plenty of other options are coming – COVI is one of them. COVI is a smart light, but it can do much more than that.
It’s Sunday and this means we are ready to bring you another ‘Crowdfunding project of the week’, where we highlight some of the hottest tech coming from sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo. There’s no time to waste, so let’s jump right in. Keeping devices alive has become one of our biggest worries. This is exactly why I don’t mind carrying horrifyingly bulky battery cases or packs around. ARROE has something else in mind, though. They want to turn your laptop sleeve into the ultimate charging hub.
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".
