Owners of the Essential PH-1 will be glad to hear that Essential announced that Android 8.1 Oreo is now officially out of beta and ready for OTA download. Most OEM updates are deployed in waves to minimize server load and reduce the risk of any potential bugs or glitches, so it may not show up immediately. To attempt a forced update, simply hit “Check For Update” in the appropriate section of the Settings menu.
A recent annual survey of 25,800 U.S. adults found that Amazon has the best corporate reputation for the third year in a row, while Google has dropped to the 28th place, down significantly from 8th where it sat last year. The Harris Poll Reputation Quotient, which began in 1999, conducted the survey from December 11 to January 12 and examined the participant sentiment of the 100 most visible corporate brands. Of additional interest is Apple’s ranking, which dropped from 5th to 29th.
Samsung may have set some lofty goals for its recently announced Galaxy S9 series, as an unspecified source claims Korea’s perennial OEM intends to sell many as 43 million units during 2018. This might come as a surprise to some, given that recent reports have already been the bringer of bad news, suggesting underwhelming pre-sale numbers in several key markets.
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".
