If you were looking to buy a pair of AirPods, you may be better off waiting a few more months. Bloomberg reported Thursday that Apple is working on a second version of its popular AirPod in-ear headphones. The updated product will include an upgraded wireless chip for faster and more powerful on-board processing; a greater level of water resistance, in case you get caught in a downpour; and the addition of Hey Siri, the entirely voice-based version of Apple’s virtual assistant.
When Apple launched iOS 11 last fall, it came with an incredibly useful update: an SOS feature. We lauded this SOS feature when it debuted, but it’s apparently wreaking some havoc at a California refurbishment center. CBS Sacramento reports that since October, Apple’s Elk Grove distribution site has been the source of roughly 1,600 calls to 911. That’s an average of 20 calls per day. Elk Grove Police say the calls typically have no one else on the other line.
Growing up, watching the Olympics was a simple affair. I’d switch on the TV and watch whatever sport was being broadcast. It wasn’t necessarily live—in fact, it almost never was—and it may not have been a sport I cared about. But we all went through it together. That’s all changed.
@amalt Not anymore, but used to live in a Victorian with ~8 other roommates. We divvied up common space cleaning w a chore wheel/chore chart, complete with stickers, elementary school style. Your chore rotated each week & if you skipped, you also had to put $ in a house fund jar
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".
