MWC is the biggest time of year for mobile manufacturers, and for Intel, this year its all about the future. In the lead up to the show, Intel has detailed its plans for the arrival of 5G mobile networks, and what it plans to do to usher in this new era. As it turns out, the company is planning to hit the ground running with a line of 5G-capable PCs that will launch sometime next year.
In this post-headphone jack world we seem to be living in, Apple’s AirPods (and wireless earphones like them) have become more necessary. Even though Apple – and pretty much every other phone manufacturer out there, for that matter – likes to release yearly updates for its phones, we haven’t seen an upgrade to the AirPods since they first launched in 2016. That could all be changing in a fairly significant way later this year.
The Nintendo Switch, as many of you are likely already aware, has enjoyed an excellent first year of retail availability. Though that first year isn’t technically over yet, it will be soon, as the first anniversary of the Switch’s launch is coming up on March 3. It’s then that we begin what Nintendo itself has described a “crucial” second year for the Switch, and the hope is that we’ll see just as much first party support as we did in the console’s first year.
@longjohndevine@slashgear And? I absolutely meant that at the time I wrote that article in 2016. The wonderful thing about opinions is that they can change as time goes on. You should consider that as you plaster that screenshot in reply to all of my tweets.
@RichEdmonds@longjohndevine@SwitchWeekly@LegsFrank@kobunheat Which is why I've recanted that opinion numerous times throughout 2017. The Switch is the best thing to happen to gaming in a long time. To imply Nintendo wasn't deserving of that criticism in 2016 because the Switch is a success now seems a little silly, though.
@GoNintendoTweet@tinycartridge Just so we're on the same page, I have recanted this opinion. Switch is my favorite device of 2017 and I named BotW my GOTY. However, I do think it was a valid opinion to hold back when I wrote that article in Sept 2016. Timing is an important consideration, I think. https://t.co/mBCGuj6TiI
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
