Alphabet's strategy of trying to stuff the difference between mobile advertising value with additional clicks appears to still be paying off as the company once again showed Wall Street that it can make a ton of money and continue to grow.
Apple seems to have scrubbed the 11-inch MacBook Air from all of its online stores following its MacBook Pro presentation earlier today, and that the death of the 11-inch MacBook Air is official. At the event, Apple unveiled a series of new laptops, also including a thinner and more lightweight 13-inch MacBook Pro - which still had function keys rather than the touchpad in its higher-end models.
With Twitter's acquisition hopes essentially dead, the company now seems it's on its own to fend for itself and needs to figure out a way to build a reasonable and profitable business. Today, it got a much-needed good Q3 performance by largely beating Wall Street's expectations across the board.
Well that was unexpected - Tesla reported today in its third-quarter that it had earnings of 74 cents per share, compared to Wall Street's expectations of a loss of 54 cents per share. In other words: Tesla said it actually made a profit this quarter on a GAAP basis.
In May earlier this year, Snapchat raised around $1.8 billion in a financing round that valued it at around $18 billion - and now it looks like that valuation could double in its upcoming IPO. Bloomberg is reporting that Snapchat is looking to raise as much as $4 billion in its initial public offering that could value it as high as $35 billion.
Apple is working to match the demand for the iPhone 7 Plus as best as it can, but it might not meet all the demand by the end of the year, CEO Tim Cook said on the investor call discussing its fourth-quarter earnings.
All eyes are, officially, on the holiday season for Apple. Ahead of the Christmas retail season, Apple reported its fourth-quarter earnings that were basically directly in-line with what Wall Street was expecting. Almost everything came in line as the company stands in a basic holding pattern, waiting for the first full quarter of its next generation of iPhone sales to come in throughout the holiday season.
Matt Zeiler grew up in a Canadian farming community - but fast forward a few decades and he's now running a startup that's looking to bring the same kinds of visual search tools that Pinterest and Google have to other companies and developers.
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
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".
