In February of 2004, the birth of CuteGeek.com came in the form of a dating site – at least that was the idea. Five years later, it remained a parked domain. During CES 2009, Michael Reyes (HardwareGeeks.com) started talking to his latest and greatest blogger (guess who’s writing this) Radiris Diaz about the site and from their experiences at the event, they realized that the female blogging space was a niche market, especially in technology because there was not enough women doing it, despite the amount of information out there to cover (especially when it came to consumer products).

Combining elegance with technology is no easy task. I was intrigued to learn about the smart strap called "CT BAND"that gives intelligence (smart watches features) to all classic watches by simply attaching it to the watch dial. Wait...WHAT!? How amazing is it to make any of your watches into smart watches?! Instead of buying a separate fitness tracker that clearly does not look as nice as a watch the CT BAND fits that void so you have both in one.

Smart appliance demonstrations are one of my favorites to check out at any trade conference or event. I still laugh at when I was at the Napa Valley Film Festival in 2013 and did the Dacor demo of the Discovery Smart Oven. Throughout the entire Napa Valley Film Festival I kept getting texts saying my turkey was ready. Hilarious way for me to find out the product works.
I'm seriously starting to think that robots really are taking over the planet! For the past couple months I've been posting articles on robots that will be launching or that have demos during CES and the list continues to expand.

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".
