Walmart.com is bigger than you might think. The site has 60 million items for sale, Walmart CTO Jeremy King said at the VB Summit in Berkeley, California today. That’s up from 700,000 items when he joined Walmart in 2011, and it doesn’t include Jet.com, the e-commerce site Walmart acquired last year. Online sales have also made notable gains: The company reported a 67 percent year over year increase in quarterly online sales for the three months ending in June of this year.
When Cisco started working on a unified analytics platform, the company was more concerned with finding the right people to do the work than the data they were using, Cisco’s vice president of strategy Rajat Mishra said at the VB Summit in Berkeley, California today. “I wish I could tell you we had a very analytical approach to this problem,” he said in an onstage interview.
Google’s Waze navigation app is integrating with Android Auto, Google’s hands free smart car operating system. That should make the car operating system more attractive for potential users who are in the market for new cars. Android Auto has more than 5 million users according to the Google Play store. Its users already have access to Google’s more basic navigation app, Google Maps. Waze for Android Auto will have basically all the same capabilities on the car dashboard screen as it does on mobile.
@abigailStev@Scaachi@KristelJax You can create a Google Voice number for Signal. I've done that twice. You just create Google Voice number, then download Signal and input that number. I have an Android and I don't know if the process is more complicated for iPhone.
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".
