Has the next generation of Microsoft's flagship device gone where no one has gone before? Is it a tired take on a run-out category, or a game-changing hybrid? Redmond magazine Editor Jeffrey Schwartz does his best to find out. Read on... It's the tablet that can finally replace your laptop or even a MacBook Pro. That's the new tagline for the new Surface Pro 3 and the theme of the new television commercials promoting Microsoft's latest effort to merge the PC and the tablet.
Lenovo this week launched its most expansive portfolio of new datacenter products, over two years after acquiring IBM's x86 server business at the peak of the market. The company announced the reboot of its entire datacenter portfolio at the Lenovo Transform event in New York City on Tuesday, introducing 26 new servers, storage and network gear, as well as a new line of engineered appliances and hyper-converged systems.
It's part of an effort to make servers more cloud ready. If Dell wants to keep being a leading hardware vendor in the cloud age, it needs servers that can keep up with the needs of more demanding infrastructure. Cloud computing -- whether public, private or hybrid -- puts more strain on the underlying systems than the familiar, traditional datacenter model where everything stayed on-premises.
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".
