Q: What bike rack can you suggest for a four-bike family? A: We don’t have a specific recommendation for a four-bike rack, but you should consider a hitch- or roof-mounted rack, or a combination of different types of racks, and we have a few ideas for you. To help you get familiar with the different types, our guide to the best bike racks and carriers has a rundown of the pros and cons of each.
Q: My new Honda does not come with any sort of CD player option, and it isn’t available as an add-on. Is there some sort of accessory that would allow me to play CDs though my car stereo? Perhaps something that draws power from the “cigarette lighter” power outlet and feeds the music output into the aux-in USB-type input. I’d also be interested in adding an HD tuner as well, if possible. A: As with your Honda, more new cars are coming sans a CD player.
Q: I am interested in buying a used car, specifically the Honda Fit, and looking for some general advice. What should I look for when purchasing a secondhand car? A: A well-maintained, late-model used car is one of the best automotive values you can get. The car has already taken its biggest hit in depreciation and likely still has many years of life in it—today’s vehicles can typically run for more than 200,000 miles. A more recent car will likely have better safety and infotainment features.
@jrick@wirecutter They're designed to replace a car's original stereo head unit, and should fit any car that has a standard double-DIN (8x4-inch) opening in the dash for the stereo. You can call a dealer or car-stereo installer to check.
@gershonmarx@thewirecutter Only two of the inflators we tested were rated for 10 amps--AAA and Campbell Hausfeld--but neither was very impressive. Good alternatives are the Slime cordless model 40033 (but keep it charged) or one of the direct-to-battery models, which all performed well but cost more $$.
@im_jagga@wirecutter When using both front and rear cams, we think a 32 GB (Class 10) is a minimum. If you want it only for recording rare events (a collision), you don't need a big card. If you're recording scenic vistas as you drive, a larger card lets you fit more on before it starts overwriting.
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".
