When Apple announced the LTE-equipped Apple Watch Series 3 during its press event last week , the company didn’t mention an extra bit of sticker shock: Beyond the $399 device price, cellular connectivity will cost $10 per month on U.S. carriers. (If your plan isn’t unlimited, data will come out of the same allotment as your phone.) That’s the same price most carriers charge to add an iPad or another LTE-equipped tablet to an existing wireless plan.
Google Home has carved out a healthy chunk of the connected speaker market over the last year, but it’s still far behind Amazon’s Echo, according to Consumer Intelligence Research Partners . From a survey of 300 connected speaker owners, the firm estimates that Amazon holds 76% percent of the current installed base, versus 24% for Google Home . That’s partly because Amazon got a two-year head start, launching the original Echo in November 2014.
Google has set a timeframe for blocking autoplay videos in the Chrome browser. Starting in January, Chrome will only allow automatic playback if the videos are muted by default, or if they meet Google’s criteria showing that users are actually interested in the content. Apple has announced a similar feature in the next version of its Safari desktop browser, coming alongside MacOS High Sierra later this month.
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".
