It’s not a baby F-150 The pickup you see here is styled to look like the F-150, but the two trucks have next to nothing in common. What they do share is strength: According to program engineer Rick Bolt, the Ranger was reengineered to handle the F-150’s battery of durability tests. That means the body is mostly composed of steel, not aluminum. The cargo area is a simple box, not a Swiss army knife with a remote-operated tailgate. And there are two body styles, not an endless amount of permutations.
Here’s how it works: Let’s say you wanted to borrow your friend’s XC40 for a sick day (beach day) excursion. Through the app, you make a request for a specific rental time. All the XC40 owner (or lessee) has to do is approve the request, and your smartphone acts as the key. At the end of the borrowing period, a summary of the ride, including fuel used and total time spent, is sent to the master account. In practice, it’s remarkably easy to use.
Some leading automotive designers would argue that when it comes to screens in cars, the practice is approaching a tipping point. These days you can’t get into a new car without being bombarded by digital displays that seem to control just about everything. Behold the Byton Concept: the first design study from a Chinese EV startup that promises a seismic shift in the way we approach the design of in-car screens. (Stop us if you’ve heard that mission before.)
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".
