Red-haired, recovering scientist, writer, photographer, thinker, not a dancer, but am terribly unhappy with filling in biography sections on sites like this. Feeling compelled to make a joke. Can't think of one. Hence will just waffle on a bit about my rather zig-zag career to journalism, mention...
Bill Gajda, head of mobile at global payment firm Visa, just revealed ahead of a formal press announcement at a Mobile World Congress industry event in Barcelona that Visa has achieved a deal with Samsung to ensure that Visa’s payWave contact-free payment system will be built into all future NFC-sporting Samsung smartphones. In a move designed to promote all mobile pay, not just using Visa’s cards and tech, Visa’s system will be able to add cards from other providers too.

Apple has filed a number of stunningly promising patents this week, and combined with news from manufacturing partners and some leaks, here’s what may be coming up in future iDevices. We’ve seen a few rumors that Apple is adding a camera to its tiny touchscreen Nano iPod–bringing back a facility it added to its last-gen Nano at the end of its lifecycle.
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".
