The first flagship smartphone to bear the Nokia name in years looks like it’s nearly here, after an invite for an event on August 16 was sent out to media - and we expect to see the Nokia 8 launched there. There's no question that a new handset will be launched, with the invite reading: "HMD Global invites you to an exclusive gathering to unveil the next milestone for Nokia phones."
UK owners of the HTC U11 can from today download Amazon’s Alexa smart assistant on their handsets, giving users the choice of two AIs on their handset. The U11 already arrived with Google’s Assistant on board, but following in the footsteps of the US the HTC Alexa app can now be updated on UK handsets to bring Amazon’s talkative helper to the fore.
The Asus Zenfone AR price has been revealed as £799 for the UK as pre-orders for the augmented reality focused handset open. It’s certainly not cheap, but the Zenfone AR is the first smartphone to pack in Google’s Project Tango smarts with enough power for you to take full advantage of the technology. We’ve already seen the technology in the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro, but that only received a limited release and didn’t have the power under the hood to really get Project Tango going.
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".
