CES isn't exactly a gaming show typically, but a lot of companies still want to show off their wares to get ahead of the E3 onslaught. CES 2018 brought us some interesting announcements in the way of gaming gadgets and accessories, and we found a few tantalizing items that made us a bit too excited as CES 2018 came to a close. The Game Boy is making a comeback, and we can't wait to get our hands on it.
Even though CES is known for TVs, robots, and cars, it's also known to offer a dazzling assortment of smaller pieces of tech that can only be described as "gadgets." This year's show offered a pretty interesting assortment of breakthrough technologies, so we roamed the show floor and dug through all the press releases to find eight of the coolest gadgets announced during CES 2018. Some of which ship in just a few weeks, while others might never see the light of day if the past is prologue.
When you visit Mint SIM's website, you're greeted by an adorable fox wearing hipster glasses and a faux-neon sign advertising a three-month, $15-per-month trial offer for wireless service. The plan includes unlimited talk, text, and 2GB of data per month. For those paying a lot more than $15 a month, which let's be honest, is almost all of us, the $15 price point is a little too good to be true... right? Not exactly. The pricing and service are real.
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".
