While some of you have probably heard about it but haven’t tried it out, the virtual reality world, particularly in the coming years, could change our daily lives (work, vacations, education and health). So, here’s a short guide to the main players in the VR world. There are a lot of VR options out there, and the following are headsets which require a smartphone in order to display VR content. Let’s start with the simplest one.
Released several months apart, the Huawei P8 Lite (2017) and the P9 Lite are two mid-range smartphones from the Chinese manufacturer which have many similarities, but also many of differences which, at first glance, maybe aren’t apparent. Here’s an in-depth comparison to help you decide between the two smartphones. Both the P8 Lite (2017) and the P9 Lite have beautiful designs. While the first seems to reflect the design of the P10 generation, the second is a reminder of the P8's design.
Having caught sight of the words “developers conference”, many readers may be tempted to divert their attention and promptly ignore reading about the developers conference. But like it or not, the Google I/O 2017 will have a significant impact not only on the lives of the fans, geeks and the most tech-savvy among us, but also on the average Android user. Here are five important things from the Google I/O 2017 that are worth making a mental note of.
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".
