Long-running rumors of a Nokia(s nok) tablet running Microsoft’s(s msft) Windows RT could be true based on alleged images of such a device appearing on Friday. Digi-Wo, a China-based website, has pictures of a Nokia tablet that resembles Microsoft’s own Surface RT: A drawing shows the tablet with a keyboard cover and hinge. Sources close to The Verge say Nokia plans to debut the slate in September at a New York City event.
As one of the more popular smarthome hubs, it makes sense that Wink recently got involved with home security by introducing its $199 Wink Lookout bundle aimed at first-time buyers. The bundle includes a siren, some sensors and a Wink hub. Even those of us — like me — who already have a Wink hub can add some of the individual security components of Lookout, which are available separately. This two-pronged strategy is a smart play by Wink but the question is: How well does Wink Lookout work?
With the Amazon Echo Plus now available, Amazon finally has a hub of its own for the smart home. I’m still convinced the Echo Plus is really meant for folks that don’t already have a hub controlling devices in their house, mainly because Amazon opted not to include a Z-Wave radio in the hub.
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".
