For some, the social aspect of gaming is a key piece to how much they enjoy sitting down to shoot some zombies or run a raid. The centerpiece of that social interaction is voice chat. All major platforms now support it in one form or another. PlayStation and Xbox both have built-in group chats and the options are basically limitless if you play on PC. Xbox Live’s voice chat has always been looked at favorably. The party system has pretty good stability, and voices generally sound clear and crisp.
Alphabet is on a mission to bring internet to parts of the world where it has thus far been impossible to get connected. It started Project Loon, its balloon-based internet project, several years ago to accomplish that goal. We’ve seen the balloons deployed in countries like Sri Lanka and Vatican City, and used after natural disasters in Puerto Rico and Chile. The balloons set up Wi-Fi networks while floating about 11 miles up in the air, but they’re temporary.
One of Android’s strengths has always been customization. You can download any number of third-party launchers, icon packs, and widgets to make your phone into precisely what you want. In fact, my wife’s Samsung Galaxy S8 looks much more like a Windows Phone than it does what you’d expect to see from an Android device. While I theme my device far less than my wife, my favorite app to do so has been Zooper Widget.
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".
