Mashable Choice highlights the best of everything we cover, have experienced first-hand and would recommend to others. Cozmo is just a toy, but it knows my face and, perhaps more importantly, me.
Mashable Debuts exclusively premieres music, videos, artwork, trailers and more. You saw it here first! There is a Santa's workshop and it's in the heart of New Jersey. Housed in a relatively understated, three-story brick building, Macy's Studio is not filled with toys, but, instead, wondrous holiday creations that boggle the mind.
My backpack is full of little lenses, optical image enhancement attachments from Olloclip for my iPhone 6 that I have literally used around the world. Now, with the iPhone 7, they are useless. I need some new attachments. Olloclip, apparently, has me covered.
Mention to someone that you're carrying a Samsung Galaxy Note7 today and they will likely make a joke, usually something to do with it possibly bursting into flames. I'm holding a second generation Galaxy Note7 right now and, yes, was a little nervous when I turned it on and off a few times.
Microsoft is about to make our fall a little more interesting. The company on Friday sent out invites to press for a New York City product showcase on October 26, one that should illustrate the next wave of Windows innovation.
Behold technology and cosplay together. One of the best parts of the yearly nerd-fest known as New York Comic Con is the amazing character and superhero (or anti-hero) costumes. They're beautiful, bold and always memorable. You just want to capture them all.
There is virtually nothing special about Amazon's latest tablet, the Fire HD 8. It's a wide-screen, 8.4-inch x 5-inch by 0.4-inch thick, 12-ounce device, that ticks off all the boxes for above-average entry-level tablets. It should not be mentioned in the same breath as the thinner, lighter and significantly more powerful Apple iPad Mini - except in one key respect.
Lightseekers by Play Fusion opens the door between the physical and virtual worlds and never truly closes it. When it ships early next year, it may stand in stark contrast to games like Skylanders and Disney Infinity, which brought the fanciful world of RPGS to the real world.
For just under $100 a year, Amazon Prime is a pretty good deal: free 2-day shipping, all the streaming music and video content you can consume and cloud storage for all of your photos. What's been missing, oddly, is any kind of significant book deal - until now.
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
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".
