It’s that time of the year where everyone is racing to buy the best gifts. Whether those gifts are for you, a loved one or friend; it’s always hard to narrow down the choices. The devices on my list are gadgets I’ve reviewed and loved so much that I purchased them. Whether you’re on a budget or looking to splurge this holiday season, there’s something on this list.
I remember Firefox being a go-to browser in the early days of the internet. While I was growing up, I’d log into IRC, boot up Firefox, and explore the first communities on the internet. Since then, I’ve switched to Chrome and Slack but continue to be involved in small, niche communities. I moved away from Firefox around 2009, for so many reasons. A lot of them revolved around how fast Chrome was and how you didn’t need to restart the browser to install a new extension!
If you live in an urban environment with lots of noise or work nights and sleep during the day; you’ve struggled with sleeping. The best way to keep noise out while your sleeping is to use earplugs. Bose, on the other hand, wants to use technology to keep noise out whether your sleeping at night or during the day. The Bose noise-masking Sleepbuds launched an Indiegogo campaign as a way to field test the experimental earbuds.
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".
