In a product category — PCs — that does not see new form factors very often, Dell formally introduced Canvas, a novel type of workspace for creative people, at SIGGRAPH in Los Angeles Aug. 1. Brought out by Dell’s workstation group, Canvas builds on Microsoft’s Creators Update, the Windows 10 edition being sent over the wires this summer to qualified hardware. Canvas is essentially an additional work surface for a workstation.
I recently went on a jag, looking for early nudes of Egon Schiele, the Austrian Expressionist who died at 28 in the great influenza pandemic of 1918, which swept the world and killed a third of its population. His career was necessarily short. Early work shows up in 1905, when he was 15, and he was prolific right up to the end, giving him 13 years of output. My collection of his work is an offshoot of a project, which has taken years, to get the best digital copies of artwork I can.
A few weeks back, I was watching with fascination a 10-year anniversary video of the iPhone put out by the Wall Street Journal. In it, the chief hardware and software engineers on the project — Scott Forstall, Tony Fadell, and Greg Christie — recount the arduous process of turning Steve Jobs’s vision into one of the best-selling products ever made.
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".
