I am an active Google Assistant user. I use it for everything, like setting alarms, quick fact checks or even searching for photos. However, last week, when I switched to the Xiaomi Mi Note 3, the Google Assistant didn't behave as expected. Whenever I asked it anything, it would show me the expected results on the screen, however, there was no voice output. Bummer for a voice-based smart assistant, right?
The Huawei Honor 7X is one of the freshest phones in the Indian market. This budget offering from the house of Huawei is powered by the in-house HiSilicon Kirin 659 processor and a 3340mAh battery unit. What's more? The Honor 7X runs Android Nougat and sports a screen with an 18:9 aspect ratio screen. As great as these specs may look, phones these days are unapologetically fragile. All it takes is a short fall and the phone might end up with dings and scratches, and worse, even a shattered screen.
The Samsung Galaxy A8+ is one of the new entrants to join the dual camera race. Sporting a primary 8-megapixel camera and a secondary 16-megapixel camera at the front, the Galaxy A8+ can capture admirable portrait shots. Besides, the rear camera isn't bad either. From amazing panoramic shots to hyperlapse videos — it can do them all. However, these are specs that we all know about. If you want to get the most out of your phone cameras, the secret lies in the hidden camera settings and modes.
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".
