Apple has already been tipped to introduce wireless charging with the iPhone 8 – but the feature may not be available at launch. For years, rival smartphone makers like Samsung have been fitting their flagship smartphones with the ability to wirelessly charge. This involves placing the phone on a charging service, from which power is inducted into the handset, thus recharging the battery. But Apple has always steered clear of the tech for the iPhone.
Volkswagen has confirmed plans to start manufacturing a fully electric successor to the VW Microbus, with a launch expected as soon as 2022. Earlier this year, at the Detroit motor show, Volkswagen debuted the I.D. Buzz concept car, a re-imagining of the iconic 60s VW Microbus that was powered entirely by electricity. But it seems Volkswagen’s wacky concept went down better than expected amongst car fans, prompting the automaker to double down on the idea.
There’s almost nothing we don’t know about Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Note 8 smartphone at this point – so these two new leaks are the icing on the cake. Later this month, Samsung is expected to reveal the Galaxy Note 8 to the world, in a bid to take on Apple’s upcoming iPhone 8.
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".
