Your articles and reviews have definitely caught my attention about what Sony is doing with large sensors in its cameras — so much so that I have narrowed down the choice for my next purchase to Sony’s top-end point-and-shoot, the RX-100 (forgoing the higher price and slight feature upgrade of the RX-100 II) and the entry-level interchangeable-lens NEX-3N.
How Do We Get Off the Tech Treadmill? I am 72 years old and have upgraded my way through the tech evolutions since the late 1980s. What was once an exciting adventure on a frontier has become something Sisyphean, a never-ending challenge to roll the stone of savvy up the hill of progress. Increasingly, as I address new products or upgrades, new apps, new media, I feel the labor of learning grow more wearisome. I suffer from tech fatigue.
"Can We Meet Up At CES?" Hi David…Hope you had a great holiday! Our company will be announcing some news soon. We’d be happy to meet with you at CES to share more details! We’ll have a room at The Wynn and could meet you anytime between 1 and 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 8. How does that sound? CES is North America’s largest trade show. 3,200 booths. 15 miles of aisles. 150,000 reporters and industry reps vying for your attention. It is, therefore, the worst possible time for meetings!
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".
