One by one, Google is squashing all those annoying Pixel 2 and 2 XL bugs with software updates. According to one account on the Pixel User Community forums, the issue consists of a "high pitch frequency sound and clicking when the screen is on and unlocked with ear up to the device like you are on a phone call." Now, as reported by Android Police, one of Google's community managers acknowledged the issue in a short post.
Even though it's had an incredibly tumultuous year, Bitcoin has once again defied the naysayers and is currently trading at an all time high of $8,200, with a market cap of over $137 billion. The price rise comes shortly after a cancelled fork and the first signs that big, institutional investors are finally caving in and joining the bandwagon. The cryptocurrency was once touted as the new digital cash but is currently mostly viewed as a store of value—akin to a digital gold.
Three MIT students have built a very special type of 3D printer: one that produces ice cream. A group of students, Kyle Hounsell, Kristine Bunker and David Donghyun Kim, created the printer as part of a class project in additive manufacturing, hacking a Cuisinart soft-serve ice cream machine and attaching it to a Solidoodle 3D printer. In order to maintain its shape, the students pumped a stream of liquid nitrogen over the ice cream as the printer laid out the shapes layer by layer.
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".
