Yesterday, MoviePass grabbed the Internet's attention by offering a, quite frankly, unbelievable deal. For just $9.95 a month you can go watch a new movie every day at one of 4,000 movie theaters across the US. MoviePass will pay theaters the full cost of each ticket, with the idea being the cash MoviePass loses getting clawed back eventually through advertising and marketing using subscriber data.
Whenever a new games console is released, it ships with a new controller designed to be used with two hands. But not everyone can game using both of their hands, meaning either a special controller is required or certain games simply can't be played. Nintendo's Switch is the latest hardware to pose such a problem for single-handed gamers. However, it looks as though the problem has been solved thanks to an engineer with a friend in need and a 3D printer.
At the end of July HBO was hacked and 1.5TB of data stolen. A week later and episode four of season seven of Game of Thrones leaked online. It was poor quality, not the final cut, and had "For Internal Viewing Only" printed on the screen. Now episode six has leaked online, but it looks to be from another source. The leaked episode appeared for download early this morning according to The Verge.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
