Phew, CES is almost over for another year. We run down the best wearable tech at CES 2018 from both the London studio and Hugh Langley's Las Vegas hotel room. Across smartwatches, health tech, VR and AR, we cover all the big news with our first thoughts and hands on impressions, including: the Garmin Forerunner 645 Music, the HTC Vive Pro and new Android Wear watches, the Skagen Falster and Kate Spade New York Scallop.
The Ambient is back from our first CES show and kids, it was a vintage year. The smart home was the tech trend to beat all tech trends this year and not only did we get plenty of shiny, new kit to covet but we also saw more and more devices and appliances working together. We get it. If you're trying to keep up with the latest smart home news, the steady drip of stories coming out of Vegas over the past seven days has been kinda overwhelming.
If you're a fan of a certain aesthetic - playful, cute, ultra-feminine - then you'll be aware of Kate Spade's line of hybrid smartwatches. Now the collection is expanding to touchscreens with the Android Wear-running Kate Spade New York Scallop smartwatch.
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".
