Apple fans everywhere want to find out the release date of the iPhone 8, and it’s looking more and more like it will be in October rather than September. One analyst is now starting to say that it would be “reasonable to assume” that the release date of the iPhone 8 will be a month later than iPhone releases have been in recent years. hurk / PixabayMeanwhile, others are debating the extent of the iPhone 8 cycle and whether it will be “super” or not.
Snapchat and NBC News announced earlier this week that they’re uniting to launch the first daily news show on the social network. Snapchat Stay Tuned will appear on the social network‘s Discover platform two times a day Monday through Friday and once a day on Saturday and Sunday. The news was enough to boost Snap shares on Wednesday and support them on Thursday, but not enough to keep the momentum going on Friday.
Whenever a new patent from Apple is published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, the tech blog-o-sphere draws conclusions about what the technology described in it might be used for. This time there’s a patent for noise-canceling technology that can be used in devices that can be placed in the ear. Essentially, it’s a new form of the technology needed to cancel out the noise that’s around the user, which means this could be the perfect AirPods 2 patent.
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".
