Samsung's glorious Galaxy Note7 mission has just imploded, almost as spectacularly as SpaceX's Facebook satellite-carrying rocket did on the launch pad just hours before. SpaceX will mop up and launch again. Samsung's Galaxy Note7 might not be so lucky.
The iPhone 7 will arrive, but all anyone will want to talk about is the missing headphone jack. The reaction to the potential removal of the 3.5 mm headphone jack on the expected iPhone 7 has grown to such outsized proportions that one might expect Apple CEO to step up on stage next week and silently release a balloon with the words "headphone jack" as the audience tracks its journey into the rafters until it pops.
Mashable Choice highlights the best of everything we cover, have experienced first-hand and would recommend to others. Obi Wan is long gone, but his voice comes to me nonetheless, reminding me to be patient and asking me to... "Choose my activity?"

Stepping in front of a self-driving car is the automotive equivalent of a trust fall. You believe the car can see you and does not plan to run you down, but you can't catch the eye of a driver, since whoever is sitting in the driver's seat is not actually in control - or paying attention.
Kindness. That's what I always saw when I watched Gene Wilder, who died on Monday at 83. No matter what he was doing onscreen: raving like a lunatic, reanimating a cobbled together corpse or breaking out of prison, Wilder's warmth was undeniable and inescapable.
"Apple will be fine." That's what I wrote five years ago this Wednesday when Apple co-founder and CEO Steve Jobs, then in ill health, reluctantly stepped down as and handed over the reins to COO Tim Cook. It was Aug. 24, 2011.
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".
