The SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless delivers nuanced sound and a plethora of audio options, all without the need for cumbersome software. The SteelSeries Siberia 800 was an interesting experiment. Would gamers want to fine-tune their audio options on the fly — even on consoles — if it meant setting up a large transmitter rather than a simple USB dongle? The Siberia 840 sweetened the deal with Bluetooth, but the question still remained, as did the $330 price tag.
Slingshot, discovered by Kaspersky Lab, is one of the more interesting pieces of recently discovered malware. From an everyday threat standpoint, it’s negligible, having infected 100 or so PCs in the last six years. However, from an international conspiracy standpoint, Slingshot would feel right at home in a spy thriller.
Windows 10 makes it easier than ever to find files, with a handy always-active search bar right next to the start menu. There’s only one problem: Although Windows 10 is supposed to index files on all of your active hard drives, Microsoft’s ubiquitous OS usually sticks to the C: drive and calls it a day.
@ramblingharker@the_moviebob The audience — and a lot of creators — grew up. CA didn't grow with them. No big loss, from that perspective, but the worst part is that so many people got screwed out of money and influence along the way.
@ramblingharker@the_moviebob Heck, I'm not too proud to admit that I started game-blogging because I was hoping to join their ranks. But my writing and videos attracted a different kind of audience, wound up transitioning to old-fashioned journalism full-time.
CA inspired a lot of people, myself included.
@ramblingharker@the_moviebob Thank you, Mike! You know, I was really into CA back in the day. I think I aged out of the target demographic, but was still impressed with all the talent behind it. Relieved that many creators landed on their feet; surprised that it was such a mess behind-the-scenes.
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".
