I reckon we've turned the corner on gaming notebooks. And not just gaming -- the likes of ASUS, Acer, MSI, Gigabyte and more are pumping out models from the ultrabook to ultrabrick with performance that rivals their desktop counterparts. The problem is, few -- if any -- are configurable. Enter Metabox, with its customisable range of notebooks. Today, we're looking at the company's Prime-X P750TM-G, which packs enormous grunt in the form of an 8th gen i7-8700K and an NVIDIA GTX 1060.
OK, we get it. If you want to survive on Mars, just grow a bunch of potatoes out of your own, uh, fertiliser, like Matt Damon in The Martian and boil, smash and stew them to your stomach’s content. Except potatoes don’t grow anywhere near as well as on Mars as other vegetables, going by experiments conducted by Villanova University’s Dr Edward Guinan and his “red thumb” students.
Google killed the View Image button recently and while it's easy enough to work around, it'd be even better if there was a way to restore it. Hang on... isn't that what browser extensions and addons are for? To the rescue is developer Joshua B, who has cooked up extensions for both Chrome and Firefox that return the button to its rightful place. I doubt Mozilla cares about the addon, but I'm a little surprised it survived Google's review process for the Web Store.
@buffy_gorrilla@GizmodoAU@jonathangreen Thanks for the heads-up. I've corrected the article. Re. name -- search results show your LinkedIn profile appears as "Elizabeth (Buffy) Gorrilla", though LinkedIn itself has the correct name. Apologies!
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".
