Hot on the heels of yesterday’s report that Nintendo is opening itself up to more mature games on the Switch, Bethesda has announced its release date for DOOM on the console. If shooting demons on the go appeals to you at all, then you’ll be able to do so starting from the 10th of November. The Nintendo Switch has been receiving a ton of third-party support this year.
Over the last few years, the idea of modular smartphone add-ons has been explored by a myriad of companies. The latest smartphone to offer modular add-ons is the Essential Phone, from Andy Rubin, the co-founder of Android. Unfortunately, it looks like this feature has landed Essential with a lawsuit, with a company alleging that Essential stole trade secrets. The lawsuit is filed by Keyssa, a wireless technology company backed by one of the co-creators of the iPod.
Yesterday some worrying news hit the web, with a new exploit known as KRACK becoming public knowledge. This exploit allows attackers to read WiFi traffic between devices and wireless access points, the issue also works against common WiFi encryption methods, including WPA and WPA 2. Android and Linux devices were the most widely affected, but tech companies are already on the ball with fixes. KRACK allows attackers to intercept traffic and read information that should have been encrypted.
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".
