If you've been seeing a strip of thumbnails along the bottom of YouTube videos lately, you're not seeing things. The site has been quietly rolling out a feature that automatically generates thumbnails of every moment in a video, laying them all out the way a video-editing app like iMovie would.
If you live in or close to New York City, your cellphone likely made a strange sound at about 8 a.m. this morning. The noise accompanied a special notification about the identity of the chief suspect in this weekend's Chelsea bombing, 28-year-old Ahmad Khan Rahami, with advice to call 911 if he's spotted.
SAN FRANCISCO - Wearing the Apple Watch Series 2 is nothing new. That is, it doesn't inspire much in the way of "wow" moments where you can see, hear or feel something different. It's a new Apple Watch, same as the old Apple Watch. That's not really true, of course.
SAN FRANCISCO - Apple's new AirPods are either genius or a disaster. After trying them out at the iPhone 7 launch, I think they might be both. Each AirPod looks almost exactly like a regular Apple EarPod, just with the cables cut off. The bottoms of each are silver and contain the microphones.
Like Samsung, LG releases its flagship line of phones in the spring and a weirder, but still high-end, phone in the fall. The second model acts as a kind of testing ground for more cutting-edge tech. Last year, LG set up this pattern with the V10.
Smartwatches have changed a lot since the release of the Apple Watch. Once a mess of myriad operating systems and designs, the smartwatch space has morphed into a trinary system with the vertices consisting of the Apple Watch, Google's Android Wear platform and Samsung's Gear watches.
Can you live without a headphone jack? For millions of iPhone owners, they're about to find out, assuming reports (and there are many) that the iPhone 7 will be the first smartphone from Apple to do away with the venerable audio port.
Google's Alphabet is shaking things up at Nest... again. reports, and Mashable has confirmed, that the tech giant is moving several software developers back to Google. Nest will continue to make, sell and market its hardware, but those developers will now work on Google's broader Internet of Things platforms. The move isn't too surprising given what's been happening with Nest - and the broader category of smart-home devices - over the past year.
Mashable Choice highlights the best of everything we cover, have experienced first-hand and would recommend to others. I love steak. That's why, for most of my adult life, I've tried to hone my skills at cooking it. Grilling, pan-frying, broiling - I've done it all, with all kinds of cuts.
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
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".
