Your child may be able to unlock your new iPhone X simply by looking at it. If you use Apple's Face ID technology - which unlocks iPhones by recognizing the user looking at the device - you may be at risk of having your child, parent, or other close family member being able to unlock your device without your authorization. Apparently, the similarity of appearance of close relatives can, at times, trick Face ID, which sometimes has difficulty distinguishing between close family members.
As we enter the holiday season I thought I would share with my readers a list of eleven useful sites that you should check out (if you have not already done so):Driving to watch a Thanksgiving parade, to visit relatives in the city over Christmas, or to a public Menorah lighting? Bestparking.com lets you compare the price of parking at nearby garages, and offers coupons that can save you significant amounts.
As I discussed earlier this month, failure to comply with the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) by this coming May could be extremely costly for businesses on both sides of the Atlantic. Any firm located anywhere on the globe that handles private information about residents of the European Union (EU) could be subject to severe sanctions if it does not implement the protections discussed in the new EU law. So, what should a business do now to make sure it is ready?
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".
