The OnePlus 5 was officially announced today and bought with it the end of the first season of flagship phones for 2017. One of the biggest features on the OnePlus 5 is the new dual camera, with OnePlus maturing and adopting a dual lens format that most smartphone manufacturers – apart from Samsung – have also implemented. Did OnePlus need to go down the dual camera route and how does the new camera compare to the competition?
The ‘Crowdfunding project of the week’ series is where we highlight the coolest gadgets coming from websites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo. We know you have no time to be navigating through dozens of campaigns, so we take care of the grunt work and bring you only the creme de la creme. Let’s take a look at today’s featured gadget. We all want one of those cool electric bikes, but they are pretty limited in terms of options, availability and pricing.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus have been around since April, but that doesn’t mean you have been enjoying all the features it should offer. Bixby users in the USA still haven’t checked out voice commands, but this will become available soon… at least to some of you. The Korean manufacturer has announced they are getting ready to launch an early preview of Bixby’s voice command features. What’s with the delay?
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".
