Rubbin' is Racin'. Tradin' Paint. American Racin' goes round and round with just left turns. F1. Bonneville Salt Flats. Watches and autos have gone together for as long as people have been pushing motorcars past the limits of good sense. Marchand is a relatively new brand, just preparing to release their first watch now.
Gentlemen, what do you have, 2 weeks until February 14? Are you still wondering what to get? Well, maybe I can give you a few suggestions with the 2016 edition of the Wrist Watch Review Valentines Day Gift Guide. In general, women's watches do not excite me.
I truly enjoyed playing a lot of the Vive games. The Vive let us forget we were in a basement and put us in strange worlds full of air and light and color. The primary tool for this transport is a face mask studded with small sensors and featuring two racquet-like paddles for interacting with your world.
Avast, ye hearties! Prepare for your wrists to be boarded by these massive Bell & Ross mechanical watches. B&R is most famous for the aviation-themed pieces - all of them black and square with huge readable faces and handsome straps.
Bell & Ross, everyone's favorite big square watch company, is making waves with their new Instrument De Marine series, a decidedly nautical set of watches including a standard three-hander that Captain Cook would strip off the body of a dead privateer and a tourbillon that would go great with an alternative-Victorian-history-sci-fi submarine.
Back in the old days hardware manufacturers felt safe in the knowledge that no mere hardware hacker could attempt to recreate their inventions. From Sony to Philips to LG to Samsung, the consumer electronics industry was locked up and no one could crack the case. Until those meddling Arduino kids came along...
You would have thought that by this point in the year, I would not really have anything left from BaselWorld to talk about. Surprisingly enough, I do. While I had not heard of Armand Nicolet prior to them reaching out in the run-up to the show.
Thank you all for taking time out of your busy Sunday to pop in and check out the Watch Video Rewind for July 17, 2016. This week I have 4 watch videos that show off some really cool complications available in the stratosphere of high end watches.
If you recall from my prior write-ups, I've really, really been a big fan of the Damascus steel dials and cases that GoS have been producing. The last one I wrote about, the Sarek ( over at ABTW), is no exception to the rule, and I rather like the unintentional Star Trek reference.
It is not an every day occurrence, but more and more I am seeing established (albeit small) brands use crowd funding for the launch of a new product. Tactico is the latest to jump on this trend.
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
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".
