Even by the usual frenetic standards of today’s fast-moving TV hardware world, 2017 is starting to feel like a genuine watershed year. We’ve seen OLED screen technology leap from niche to mainstream as brands as diverse as Sony, Panasonic, Philips and Toshiba have all joined LG on the OLED bandwagon. We’ve seen LCD TVs fight back with unprecedented levels of brightness and colour at ever-more aggressive prices.
Google Play Movie & TV has become the latest streaming service to improve its viewing experience by adding support for high dynamic range video technology. Google rolled the HDR support out to its Movie & TV library last week, letting viewers experience movies with the enhanced brightness, contrast and color that’s HDR’s trademark. This is, of course, very good news for anyone who values AV quality.
As I reported in a separate story, LG has released a new firmware update for some of its 2016 OLED TVs that enables them to handle the new HLG HDR format. While this initially seemed to be the latest in a string of good news stories for LG OLED TV fans, though, it’s increasingly starting to look like it might not be quite such a positive development after all. Especially if you’re a gamer.
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".
