In case you havenâ€™t been paying attention, this yearâ€™s fall Apple event is shaping up to be a doozy. And itâ€™s not just the iPhone 8. In addition to the anniversary handset and a possible 4K Apple TV, rumors are swirling about a new Apple Watch that wonâ€™t have to always be near your phone. Just this week, both Ming Chi Kuo and CNBC corroborated an earlier rumor by Business Insider that spilled the beans on Appleâ€™s plans to release an LTE-enabled Apple Watch.
Guess how much money Apple is planning to spend on original programming next year. Hint: Not as much as Google is paying Apple to remain the default search engine on your iPhone. Plus, Apple Watch rumors point to LTE capabilities, and iOS 11 brings some questionable design choices to your favorite native apps. Macworldâ€™sÂ Oscar Raymundo, Leah Yamshon, and Michael SimonÂ talk about these topics and more in the Macworld Podcast, episode 569. Here are relevant links to get more info.
Appleâ€™s Mac sales could use a shot in the arm. While a small group of die-hards are eagerly waiting to snatch up the $5,000 iMac Pro and whatever Apple has in store for the Mac Pro next year, the majority of Mac users are opting to spend their money on iPads or new iPhones instead. Yearly shipments were down nearly 10 percent in 2016, and barring a massive fourth quarter, theyâ€™re on pace to post another dip again this year.
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".
