Apple and Qualcomm have not been on the best of terms as of late. A $1 billion lawsuit and assorted other legal actions have a way of doing that to a relationship. We know that the iPhone maker has also worked with Intel on its iPhone 7 and 8 handsets, and will continue to do so going forward, perhaps exclusively. However, a new report offers some new insight on just what Apple may expect from the partnership.
Nintendo is getting a better response to the Switch console than it had planned, and the new SNES Classic throwback unit has also made its presence felt. The two ranked #1 and #2 respectively in the latest U.S. hardware sales report for October, according to the NPD Group. The two consoles, coupled with Nintendo 3DS sales, accounted for more than 66% of the hardware sold during the month, a feat it also accomplished in September.
When a company tries to innovate in the technology field, patent infringement suits are always a possibility, no matter how diligent the research may be. While Apple has had its share of suits this year, Huawei is facing its own suit over its smartwatches from Texas-based security company Uniloc USA. The suit, filed in the Eastern District of Texas yesterday, cites a patent '646 owned by Uniloc covering a way to wake up devices because of motion. The patent was issued in October 2014.
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".
