Even after a fiery 2016 — literally — Samsung is seems set to bring back the Galaxy Note brand. In a new report by Reuters on Tuesday the smartphone giant is planning an event for the "second half of August" where it will introduce the next device in the Galaxy Note line, the Galaxy Note 8. Samsung has previously used August events to introduce updates to the Note line. Last year's ill-fated Note 7 was announced on August 2 while the prior model, 2015's Note 5, was introduced on August 13.
Unless you are a tech enthusiast there is a good chance you probably haven't heard of Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus. But as its more than 6.5 million Facebook fans will tell you, it's time to pay attention.

Backing up your PC or Mac is one of the most important things a computer owner can do. But whether it's the inconvenience of plugging in an external hard drive or the cost of cloud storage, people don't backup as frequently as they should. Google's new Drive update may help solve that problem. Revealed Wednesday in a post on the company's enterprise-focused G Suite apps blog, Google is preparing an update that adds a feature called Backup and Sync.
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".
