Looking for a new phone? The Sony Xperia XZ1 has just hit the Amazon shelves and is ready to ship to those willing to pay $699.99 for it. It is by no means a cheap device, but it does promise good specs and optimal performance, which you can learn all about in our hands-on post. It’s most special feature is that it’s one of the first devices to come with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box.
We have all the tech needed to make a smarter, safer motorcycle helmet, but for some reason manufacturers have a hard time getting it just right. A few have entered the game and now they are being joined by Japanese company Borderless, which is launching the CrossHelmet via Kickstarter. What is this CrossHelmet all about? The company aims to make a high-tech riding accessory that is functional, convenient, comfortable, safe and fun. They seem to be getting pretty close to achieving that, too.
Where are the worthy crowdfunding tech gadgets? Count on us for finding those every weekend. You have more important things to worry about, like your family. And for those you can use Eta Clock, which is currently being featured on Kickstarter. The Eta Clock is not exactly a clock, in the sense that it doesn’t really tell you the time. Instead, what it does is show you where your family is.
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".
