By most indications, Samsung’s Note 8 has helped the company recoup from last year’s debacle that was the Note 7. No exploding batteries. And plenty of new featuresWhat is it? – The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is the biggest smartphone yet to come from the company and set off the first challenge in what’s likely to be the war of big smartphones – with Apple and Google both in the battle. This is loaded with really useful features that the iPhone doesn’t have.
If someone had told me that a big button television remote control could actually improve someone’s life I would have been skeptical. But it turns out that’s exactly what the Flipper Remote can do. While most of us have no trouble dealing with a standard set top boxI was basically Googling and I was trying to find a remote control that didn’t have a hundred buttons on it because basically she wasn’t going to be able to handle all that and that’s when I came across Flipper.
According to CableLabs, the research arm of the cable industry, 93% of Americans are within reach of cable. That means they either have it in their homes or it comes to their curb. And despite reports of so-called cord cutting or cord shaving, for most of us, cable remains the primary conduit for getting big streams of information and entertainment into our homes.
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".
