The Ctrl-Alt-Del function on Windows PCs has always been a bit of an awkward two-handed operation. Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates said he wanted it to be simpler, but engineers balked at the idea. And if he had it to do over again, it would be a single-key operation. Ctrl-Alt-Del is a force quit function when the Windows OS freezes. It is also used to call up Task Manager or reboot the system, but Gates said during a Bloomberg business forum that the operation should have been easier.
Apple's premium-priced iPhone X isn't even out yet and Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S9 may already have it beat in the video department with 1,000 frames per second capability in slow motion, according to a report. The camera planned for the next smartphone in Samsung's flagship line, according to Korean site etnews, will have a new image sensor capable of capturing 1080p video at a speed more than four times faster than the iPhone X, which will only do slo-mo at 240 fps at that resolution.
If you have a Nintendo Switch, we have some good news for you. There is an NES emulator embedded in it along with the NES game Golf. The bad news is that it is only unlockable on a specific date and through specific hand motions. Why? As a poignant tribute to former Nintendo President Satoru Iwata. What started as a confused post on GBATemp by user Setery has led hackers to delve deeper into the Switch code.
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".
