Alex Garland’s latest movie Annihilation is now available to watch on Netflix. It’s a female-lead film full of smart sci-fi and one that should have people talking for years to come. Unfortunately, the only thing people do seem to be talking about is the fact the movie was not given a cinematic release outside the US. Instead, it’s gone ‘straight to Netflix’.
Merge has done it again, creating a fun and unique product that merges VR and AR technology with a whole lot of fun. No matter how immersive a VR game is, there is still the big problem of the goggles. Yes, they are improving and yes they are getting smaller but there is no getting away from the fact that you have to strap something close to your eyes for the illusion to work. Merge has gotten round this with its latest 'AR/VR' toy - the Merge Blaster.
Heading to the HTC Vive booth at MWC 2018 was a headset-wearing eye opener for anyone that’s followed the company and its journey into virtual reality. There were scores of developers showing their wares, each focused on delivering an entirely different VR experience that caters for their audience. Walking through it all was a bit like when James Bond enters Q’s lab.
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".
