Telstra has announced it will be offering refunds to some AFL Live Pass app subscribers, following the ACCC’s concerns about the company’s disclosure of available screen sizes. In late January of this year, Telstra introduced a screen size restriction (of seven inches) for live matches, meaning consumers were no longer able to watch games at full size on most tablets. During the 2016 season, however, AFL matches displayed on tablets in full screen.
Netflix’s recent study has ranked Australia as the eighth country in the world, for its ability to quickly ‘binge race’ content from its streaming service. Netflix established the term ‘binge racing’ to describe individuals who watch the new season of a show, within 24 hours of release. The study featured 190 countries – Australia notched a position in the Top 10, ranking 8th place. Canada led the charge, ahead of America and Denmark.
Logitech has brought Amazon’s smart voice assistant to its popular line of portable speakers, Ultimate Ears (UE), by launching two new models; the ‘Blast’ and ‘Megablast’. Whilst the new speakers closely resemble its existing Boom and Megaboom models, the popularity of the range should give Logitech some market strength in the emerging smart speaker battle. As the name suggests, the ‘Blast’ will be the standard model and the ‘Megablast’ will be a louder, more powerful version.
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".
