It happens a few times a year -- PC game discounts so deep, that they're practically a cultural event for PC gamers. That time has come again: Steam's Autumn sale has begun. At this point, these sales aren't really a surprise. Valve's digital game store typically slashes during summer, fall and winter events. Having one pop up just in time for Black Friday is par for the course -- but that doesn't make the deals any less impressive.
TDS Metrocom, a TDS Telecom subsidiary, has gone to the M&A well again by reaching a deal to acquire Merrimac, Wis.-based Merrimac Communications’ network and business assets. Financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed. After meeting customary regulatory approvals at both the federal and local levels, TDS said it expects to close the acquisition in the first quarter of 2018.
Tom Wheeler, the former chairman of the FCC, has taken to the airwaves to air his own response to Ajit Pai’s proposal to revise the current net neutrality rules, calling it a loss for consumers and businesses. "Even for this FCC and its leadership, this proposal raises hypocrisy to new heights," writes Wheeler in a blog post. Wheeler is now a Brookings Visiting Fellow and was at the helm of the FCC when it passed the Open Internet Rule in 2015.
@LeeroyJenkins Yeah, I'm just worried I'll quit after 5 or 10 hours again. I want to like it because of its inspirations... and it seems great for the Switch, but.... even as a commute game...will it last?
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".
