When it comes to virtual reality, it’s no wonder that Sony is leading the market with PlayStation VR. Its lower price point and compatibility with the PS4 make it a much easier investment than the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive. Despite its success, there is one factor that really holds it back from achieving more: The PlayStation Move controllers. Utilizing eight-year-old technology may have made sense for keeping development costs low, but it also brings a lot of the same flaws that plagued it.
SimpliSafe is already a big name in the smart home security industry, but its design has become dated, sticking out like a sore thumb among modern devices. That’s why the company teamed up with global design firm Ideo to completely redesign its security system. Revealed today at CES 2018, the new lineup is beautiful, powerful, and intuitive. Known for its work with Apple, Coca-Cola, and more, IDEO has cleaned up each SimpliSafe sensor.
It’s easy to gauge watercooler talk against box office stats and Metacritic scores to select the “best movies” released in any given year. In fact, we did just that for 2017, and ended up with some truly incredible films. Still, there’s something to be said for individual preference (there’s no accounting for taste! ), which is why we asked our team members to choose their favorite movies of 2017 and tell the world why they loved them.
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".
