The Galaxy S9 and S9+ are launching at Mobile World Congress, which kicks off February 26, and the new phones are reportedly hitting store shelves March 16. But what should you expect from these two flagships? Similar designs to the current Galaxy S8 lineup but with significantly upgraded cameras, a much more powerful processor and a few surprises.
If you're wondering whether deciding between the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will come down to screen size, think again. A couple of recent leaks all but confirm that the S9+ will be the Samsung flagship to buy, depending on the price difference. It was $100 for the S8 and S8+. This past week a photo of the S9 retail box reportedly surfaced, which shows that the device will boast a Super Speed Dual Pixel camera with a variable aperture of f/1.5 to f/2.6.
LAS VEGAS - It’s the rare sort of tech demo that both wows the geek in you and from a practical standpoint has the potential to make life a heck of a lot easier for everyone. Energous did that here at CES 2018 with WattUp. Tom’s Guide caught up with this ambitious company, which recently received FCC approval, to get a first look at how it’s first over-the-air, power-at-distance wireless charging works — and it’s impressive tech indeed.
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".
