FCC Chairperson Ajit Pai led the organization in a repeal of net neutrality last year, but legislators and states have both indicated they won’t let things lapse without a fight. Twenty-one states, including New York, California, Iowa, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, and Virginia, have filed suit alongside the District of Columbia, requesting that the federal government review the FCC’s “Restoring Internet Freedom” order.
Home smart speaker sales exploded over Christmas, reportedly because so many people gave them as gifts. Concerns over the ethics of giving someone a home spying device aside, it appears the hardware is causing real problems for Wi-Fi routers. Originally, it was thought that the problem was confined to one Google device, the Google Home Max, and one company’s routers (TP-Link). Additional analysis has shown this is not the case, on either end.
Quad-level-cell (QLC) NAND flash is reportedly debuting this year from multiple companies. If you spent 2017 frustrated at the high price of SSDs, the advent of quad-level cell NAND could be the answer to solving capacity woes. New Intel leaks show QLC 3D NAND SSDs arriving in the not-so-distant future, while Marvel showcased its own new memory controllers (which support both TLC and QLC) at CES 2018 last week.
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".
