People love digital photography. But when they want to print out photos at home, they are generally restricted to print sizes of 8.5” x 11”. After all, that’s the largest print size most everyday inkjet printers can handle. Until now. Epson’s new Expression Photo HD XP-15000 wide-format color printer ($350) lets you print images up to 13” x 19”. Saving you the math, that’s well over twice the size of an ordinary 8.5” x 11” sheet. As a result, your photos look relatively poster-size.
I’ve been fascinated by smart TV’s since they started emerging, but have never owned one. I always thought it would be pretty cool to be able to have dedicated channels to the likes of Netflix, Hulu and YouTube. About a month ago, I got the opportunity to test TCL’s 65-inch 65C807 Roku TV. To be honest, I had never even heard of the manufacturer until last year. I saw some of its sets at a big-box store and was fairly impressed with the picture.
Playing sports aside, my favorite hobby as a kid was photographing sports. My father even converted our laundry room into a darkroom. We would go to hockey games, football games or golf tournaments, use up a roll of film, and then come back home and develop it. The next night, we would review the negatives on the enlarger and see what gems we captured. My only problem was that our old Konica camera was never fast enough to really freeze fast action from close in.
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".
