“In 1943, IBM's Thomas Watson said the world market for computers would be about five,” said rotating CEO Guo Ping during his keynote at Huawei Connect 2017. That number is significant, said Guo, as he spoke of Huawei's vision to build one of the five major world clouds it predicts will be created in the future. The concept is based on airline alliances—Ping said that his firm would build a “cloud alliance” in partnership with operators like BT, Deutsche Telekom, Telefónica and Orange.
Hong Kong's HKT released their interim results in Hong Kong on Wednesday and reported a 5% decrease in total revenue. The dip was caused by “lower revenue from mobile handset sales in the absence of marquee handsets during the period,” said HKT in a statement. However the lack of such handsets—typified by Apple's latest release, currently expected to be announced in September of this year—didn't hurt HKT's total EBITDA, which increased by 2% to US$774 million (HK$5,968 million), said the firm.
High definition video used to be defined by two standards: 720p and 1080p. These remain the primary standards in use today-1080p is a higher resolution, but as with everything digital, there’s a trade-off: the file sizes are bigger. More resolution = more data. Also, more bandwidth-intensive. At a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels, a 4K display is four times denser than a 1080p display - thus the name. At 8.3 million pixels, the resolution is sharp.
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".
