Google parent Alphabet Inc. is giving up on selling wireless broadband service in Boston. Earlier this week Alphabet informed subscribers of its Webpass business that it’s pulling out of the Boston market, but will continue operations in its seven other markets. Webpass is a San Francisco company that uses radio transmitters to deliver high-speed Internet services to businesses and apartment buildings.
It’s only February, but it’s not too early to ask a critical question about the upcoming US congressional elections: Will Vladimir Putin get a vote? We know the Russian strongman used the Internet and social media to covertly influence the 2016 presidential election. There’s nothing to stop him trying again. And probably the only things that can keep Putin’s ambitions in check are the prudence and good sense of the American people.
Good news, everybody. Donald Trump isn’t going to nationalize the wireless broadband industry after all. But the fact that somebody in the president’s National Security Council was at least thinking about it shows how seriously the administration is taking America’s technological competition with China, and the immense potential of next-generation wireless technology.
Best part: If the deal goes through, all future #StarWars movies will once again begin with the Fox fanfare music!
I really miss that!

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".
