What are they? A pair of wireless ear-buds from Avanca. Many audio companies play fast and loose with the truth when it comes to the term "wireless audio", the lion's share having a cable connecting both ear-pieces. Avanca has dispensed with wires for a completely wireless product. The first thing you notice about the headphones is how lightweight they feel in both your hands and your ears.
What is it? We've all been there. That sinking feeling when you are still miles from home and look down to see that your mobile phone is almost out of juice. Recent research by O2 found that half of us suffer from what has been dubbed FoRo (fear of running out) when it comes to battery life. This is where the Griffin Reserve Power Bank could be just the ticket. With charging ports for both tablets (12 watts) and smartphones (5 watts) there is ample capacity and power for most needs.
What is it? With the shorter winter days meaning darker mornings and evenings it makes sense to want to make yourself as visible as possible to fellow road users. The large triangular shape is bold allowing it to stand out among the small circular lights that line the roads, while the design is distinct enough that it is unlikely to be mistaken for a traffic sign.
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".
