Netflix, which recently leapt ahead of "big cable" in the US has also shown international growth, meaning its non-US customers outnumber those domestically according to Statista. Of course, the difference is currently tiny, but it's a sign that the big international gamble it took in 2016 is starting to pay off. It's likely this is just the tip of the iceberg too.
Amazon Prime Day was a massive success for the retailer, it transpires. Unlike Black Friday and Cyber Monday where Amazon must compete with hundreds of other stores offering discounts, Prime Day is a chance for Amazon to shine. According to numbers from the company its best seller in the UK was the Amazon Echo, which was being offered at a ÂŁ70 discount. Sales globally surpassed both Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but unlike those days Prime Day is exclusively for Amazon Prime subscribers.
Here's the stuff you care about: Amazon Echo is £79.99 during Prime Day which is a saving of £70. The Echo Dot is £34.99, which is £15 off. If you want a Fire TV Stick with Voice remote, that's down to £29.99 with £10 off. There's also a Fire 7 tablet with £20 off for £29.99 and a Kindle Paperwhite for £79.99. A £30 saving. There are all sorts of other massive savings too, as you might guess. The above all kick off from 6pm today, which is earlier than the bulk of Prime deals.
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".
