With the exception of the SE and the 8/8 Plus, I’ve reviewed every new iPhone since the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus debuted three years ago. I’ve concluded every review by saying that, in one way or another, that year’s model is the best, most accessible iPhone to date. However trite, I’ve stood by that assertion because it’s true. Each model is an iteration on the last, bringing about many improvements. Accordingly, each successive model is more accessible than the last.
Although I’m fond of my Touch Bar MacBook Pro, the majority of my computing time is done on iOS, whether it be on my iPhone or my iPad. I use the iPad (the 10.5-inch model) often as a “laptop” to write blog posts and stories for my various freelance outlets. When I write on the tablet, my keyboard of choice is Apple’s Smart Keyboard. I like it for a few reasons, not the least of which is the fact it’s an “all-in-one” solution.
Marco Arment, creator of my favorite podcast app and a co-host of one of my favorite podcasts, published a piece yesterday in which he outlines what Apple should do with the next revision of the MacBook Pro. Regarding the Touch Bar, he writes:Sorry, it’s a flop. It was a solid try at something new, but it didn’t work out. There’s no shame in that — Apple should just recognize this, learn from it, and move on.
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".
