In recent quarters, Huawei has been the top-selling manufacturer of smartphones in its home market, China. Part of its recipe for success has been a brand-within-the-brand called Honor, which- like Xiaomi before it -focuses on selling cool Android phones at reasonable prices to young people over the Internet.
Anyone can take a photo: just point your camera and fire away. Taking a photo that transcends language to communicate dread, happiness, or heartache is, however, a singular talent. It requires compassion, a patient eye, and a lifetime of practice. It's a skill that Paula Bronstein has mastered.
When I grab tea with Frederick Blackford at a little corner bar in San Francisco's Hayes Valley neighborhood, the man behind the counter overhears us talking about Polaroid. And it just puts a smile on his face. Unprompted, he explains to us that the brand that made photography instant is not a relic, but alive, well, and cool.
Last Thursday, Face book announced that it was about to release an iPhone app called Paper. The app is now available from Apple's App Store. If you use Facebook on an iPhone, you really need to try it.
How a bunch of college students figured out what an Apple tablet should be, twenty-two years before it existed. In the late 1980s, Apple Computer was better known for fantasizing about breakthrough products than making them. Most famously, CEO John Sculley envisioned a futuristic gizmo called the Knowledge Navigator-featuring a bowtied digital assistant-in his 1987 book Odyssey.
The advantages that e-books have over their dead-tree forebears are so many and varied that I'm not going to bother detailing them here. But printed books retain numerous virtues, too. They are, for instance, wonderfully optimized for skimming: Stick your finger in as a bookmark, and you can rifle your way forward (or backward) without losing your place.
"When can I see u" "can't I have a cold" "I'll bring u chicken soup" "thanks I'll make a note of that" "Tomorrow night?" "sorry I'm traveling" "Just tell me when" "Do you even like me?" "I have no clue" This text-messaging conversation isn't going much of anywhere-and that's exactly the point.
In most contexts, 310 million is an impressively large number. But when it comes to Twitter-which has that many monthly active members-Wall Street sees it as a problem. That's because investors instinctively benchmark Twitter against Facebook, which has more than 1.65 billion monthly users and is still growing.
In an alternate universe, Microsoft wouldn't have to compete with Slack-because it would own it. In March, TechCrunch reported that Microsoft applications and services chief Qi Lu had pitched his bosses the idea of paying up to $8 billion to acquire the messaging phenom.
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 politicians Barack Obama and Mitt Romney 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
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.
