Though it might be an unpopular move, it looks like the headphone jack could be on its way out of the Android landscape. We’ve seen several OEM’s adopt this headphone jack-less approach in the past year, including Google and HTC, and it looks like Sony might take this path soon too. A Sony device has just passed through the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) with schematics that strongly indicate it won’t come with a headphone jack.
Google’s returns options for Nexus 5X owners on Project Fi came under fire last month. With dwindling units of the Nexus 5X—a handset prone to bootloops—in stock, users returning faulty units were offered a $100 Google Play Store credit or a $53 check instead of a replacement handset. Naturally, this lead to some disappointments, but according to Android Police, the situation has now changed in favor of the consumer.
Meizu just announced a new handset last week, the Meizu M6s, but it looks like another could be on the way soon. Gizmochina (via GSMArena) got its hands on some leaked device diagrams earlier today, reportedly for a handset known as the Meizu 15 Plus. And it looks like it could be quite special. While the M6s boasted features that were popular a couple of years ago, like a fast fingerprint scanner, this rumored device appears to be more contemporary.
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".
