In Amazon's now familiar manner of rolling out new tech gradually to different countries, the Echo Spot – the mini Echo Show – is now available for pre-order in the UK. Announced back in September, the Echo Spot is a small, globular version of the Echo with a 2.5-inch screen and a built-in camera.
Mercedes-Benz The most striking thing about the new Mercedes Benz G-Wagen? On first look, not much appears to have changed at all. And that’s a good thing. Fans will have heaved a sigh of relief that Mercedes was smart enough not to mess with what made the original iconic. What has changed is the weight. The new G-Wagen is 170kg lighter as well as being a shade bigger – 53mm longer and 121mm wider.
Piaget In 1957, Piaget introduced a phenomenal piece of watchmaking innovation - the Calibre 9P which, at just 2mm thick, was one of the thinnest movements ever made. It has taken the company some 60 years, but now it has just unveiled its latest technological leap forward that has been four years in development - the Altiplano Ultimate Concept. Piaget The watch, as the name suggests, is only a concept for now, though expect to see a commercial version at some point.
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".
