I wrote a review of the Smart Desk from Autonomous a while back. At the time it was the cheapest sit-to-stand desk with a motor. There were Ikea alternatives that were much less expensive, but all of them required you to crank them to different heights. Now almost a year later, Autonomous announced the Smart Desk 3. The new desk features the same high build quality as previous models but also includes a new AI built right into the table top.
Ahead of the Nest event on September 20th, August announced some updates to their products along with a new, cheaper lock. First, August announced the August Smart Lock Pro is the third generation lock with the Home Connect bundled in. With the Home Connect, you’re able to use Google Home, Siri (HomeKit), and Alexa to control the smart lock. The Home Connect was a separate purchase with the first and second generation August Smart Lock.
Nest held a big event in San Fransico where they announced a doorbell, home security system, and an upgraded 4K outdoor cam. The Nest Cam IQ Outdoor is a small announcement among the new products, so if you want to read more check out The Verge. Nest also announced a partnership with Yale Locks during the event. Yale will build a custom Nest-powered lock that’ll come in early 2018, but there’s not a lot of info on the device yet.
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".
