Feedly is a daily driver app for me (one I use every day and spend a fair chunk of time with every day) and my best tool for handling the massive information overload we face every day. It’s described like so by its creators:I think one of the best ways to stay well-informed and increase my knowledge on any given subject is to find great sources of information for the topic. Feedly is where I discover, add, organize and manage all the great sources I find.
Well, my time with the Essential Phone ended up being very brief. I decided to return it to Amazon after just a week — and replaced it with a phone from one of my long-time favorites, the OnePlus 5 from OnePlus. The OnePlus is still my joint favorite phone I’ve ever used, alongside the Nexus 6P — and I still have it around as my backup phone and always enjoy using it when it’s in service. I also enjoyed the OnePlus 3T, and I’m loving the OnePlus 5 after getting it just a couple days ago.
Some very early (Day 4) thoughts on the new Essential Phone, by Essential Products, the company founded by Andy Rubin, of ‘The guy who created Android’ fameI f You’ve Never Heard of the Essential Phone …I’m sure you’re not in the minority on that. As a brand new entrant in the smartphone space, it hasn’t had a lot of hype or promotion so far — though there have been a number of good early reviews of it on tech sites.
Hate cases that are hard to put on and take off, and zero tolerance for cases that screw up basic usage of the device.
Oh, and this is a well-known, well respected brand - $35 case, not some $6 shot in the dark.
Case for the Pixel 2 XL arrived from Amazon today, and will be going right back. 2 big issues with it: cutouts done so badly that using power button is near impossible, and is extremely hard to take off.
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".
