Sometime around 3,500 BC, man invented the wheel. It wasn’t very advanced and wasn’t used for transportation, either, but as a potter’s wheel. A few centuries later the ancient Greeks, who were likely sick of walking everywhere, put the wheel to use on chariots and the transportation industry was invented. These early wheels were simple, curved pieces of solid wood. Later a metal hoop would be added around the edge of the wheel and the first wheel/tire combination was formed.
The issue is less cut and dried at Seiko. Akio Naito, chairman of Seiko Corp. of America, and a member of the board of directors of Seiko Holding Corp. in Japan, says there has been “heated discussion” in the company as to what to do about the smartwatch category. So far, it has taken a cautious approach. The Seiko group does make smartwatches. It has introduced a few models in Japan under the Epson and Seiko brands, but none in international markets. Naito is in the cautious camp.
A closer look at the FH data shows that exports of electronic watches through November of this year are down by more than 1 million units, to 15.6 million, a drop of 6.3%. By contrast, unit exports of mechanical watch are up 4.6% over the same period, to 6.59 million pieces. It is something the Swiss need to keep an eye on. Quartz watches account for the lion’s share of Swiss watch volume. Between 2011 and 2015, Switzerland exported more than 20 million quartz watches per year.
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".
