It's finally happened. Apple has taken the leap into augmented reality, and that means that the age of AR is upon us. Thanks to the company's ARKit technology and the admittedly impressive new specs inside the iPhone 8 and iPhone X, augmented reality might finally become more than a passing fad. For better or worse, Apple is known for popularizing new technologies. I mean, this is the company that took the smartphone mainstream, made the iconic iPod and yes, produced the iPad.
Out of all the mixed-reality headsets coming out this year, Lenovo has the best name by far. It might also be one of the best-looking systems. Set to debut sometime in October at $349, the Explorer is the company's promising first sojourn into virtual/mixed reality sphere. Made primarily of Iron Grey plastic, the 7.3 x 3.7 x 4-inch, 13.1-ounce Explorer is lightweight and stately considering you have a pair of tracking cameras mounted on the front.
Combining a beautiful display, unique features and long battery life in a water-resistant body, the Samsung Galaxy S5 is a jack-of-all-trades smartphone. Samsung has always strived to stand out from the pack, and the Galaxy S5 does just that with a built-in heart-rate monitor and fingerprint reader. But that's not why the S5 is one of our favorite smartphones. It's the gorgeous 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display, robust camera and water-resistant design.
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".
