A sequel to one of the best mobile games out there is in the works, but you’ll have to wait a little longer to get your hands on it. Snowman, the developers behind Alto’s Adventure, is in the process of making a sequel to the hit mobile game called Alto’s Odyssey. In the new title, Alto and his friends are back, this time trading snowy peaks for desert hills. While most of the game’s mechanics are the same as its predecessor’s, that’s certainly not a bad thing.
Not only is today an exciting one because we get to see a solar eclipse for the first time in almost one hundred years, Google is also officially launching Android O today. Instead of revealing the next version of Android in a blog post like it usually does, Google is live streaming the big event from New York City to celebrate the solar eclipse. The event will take place at 2:40 pm EDT / 1:40 pm CDT / 11:40 am PDT.
Surprising pretty much no one, Google has revealed that the next major version of Android, version 8.0, will be called Android Oreo. More on that name. The name ‘Oreo’ has been licensed from Nabisco, but if you recall, this isn’t the first time Google partnered with a company for an Android name. Android 4.4 was called KitKat, and through that partnership we saw Android-branded KitKat bars in stores all around the world. Who’s looking forward to Oreo boxes with Android branding? I know I am.
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".
