Just recently I realized I’ve used my five-year-old iPad 3 maybe twice in the past year. And when I told some of my friends, they shared similar claims about no longer using their iPads. I hardly bring mine out anymore because of three main reasons. The first is that my Samsung Note 5 phone is plenty large enough to accomplish most things I used to use my iPad for -- including writing articles, reading the newspaper and watching short videos. And the phone isn’t restricted to WiFi, like my iPad.
As a golf equipment writer the past 27 years, I’ve been fortunate to try out nearly every new club that’s hit the market. Sometimes, even the top companies debut duds. PING, however, has always been the model of consistency with clubs that perform well with many golfers. I think I’ve tested every PING wood and irons over the years, as well as many of the brand’s putters. Which is why I’m excited to try the new G400 club line that PING unveiled on Monday morning. Apparently, I’m not alone.
I enjoy listening to music as much as the next guy. And thankfully, there have been many audio devices hitting the market that wirelessly draw audio from a smartphone and play it through their own speakers with much better sound. Tivoli Audio Model One Digital is such a device. I’ve been testing it out for the past week or so. The Tivoli aims to stream music via Wi-Fi or bluetooth, and also has an FM tuner. First thing I did was fasten into place the included radio antenna.
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".
