When I was in New York City celebrating my birthday a few weeks ago, I decided to treat myself to a hybrid smartwatch that I’ve had my eye on for quite a while. I have to admit that even as I was buying it, I was a little skeptical. Why move away from a highly functional touchscreen smartwatch in favor of what’s essentially a dumb watch with a few neat tricks? That’s exactly what we’re going to explore today. Do smartwatches still matter?
Joshua Vergara, Joe Hindy, Jonathan Feist, Lanh Nguyen, Nirave Gondhia, David Imel and Adam Molina are on deck for the final AA Podcast. We have nothing but gratitude for everyone that joined us for the run. We leave you with knowledge:Dr. Hindyana Jones, Jr., often shortened to “Hindy”, is a main character of the Android Authority franchise. George Lucas created the character in homage to the gaming heroes of 1980s.
Joshua Vergara, Joe Hindy, Jonathan Feist, Lanh Nguyen, Nirave Gondhia and David Imel get together to chat about how the end is nigh, sadly. This is our officially announcement that the end of the Android Authority Podcast is one week away. Shout out to us with #AAFinalPodcast on Twitter to share your favorite moments from the last 131 episodes of the show, we’ll try to get them all into the final show.
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".
