In the classic high-school physics experiment, a beam of light projected on to a screen, passing through two parallel slits, forms an interference pattern on a screen. Like two waves colliding in a pond, the two waves of light coming through the two apertures cycle in and out of phase with each other, the peaks and troughs amplifying or cancelling each other out to form stripes of bright and dark patches on the screen.
I'm going to begin this review of Samsung's just-released, swimming-oriented Gear Fit2 Pro with a piece of information that, rather like some Olympic swimmer jumping off the blocks too soon, should have me disqualified from this entire review. The information is this: I'm not like an Olympic swimmer at all. I'm rather unlike one, in fact. I can barely swim to save myself.
It's the moment, some time in the not-too-distant future, when quantum computers can be said to be better at performing certain tasks than today's classical computers. It might be the moment the quantum computers have 50 quantum bits, or "qubits", and can solve some problem that no classical computer could ever solve. Or it might be some other yardstick that determines Quantum Supremacy. Nobody knows for sure, nor can agree on, what the metric will be, and when it will be achieved.
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".
