"I want to see what your insides look like" takes on a whole new meaningThe folks at iFixit, known for its device tear-downs, recently provided an in-depth look at the internals of the new Apple iPhone X. From the tear-down we came to learn about Apple’s new approach to batteries, which included the new L shaped, two-cell battery. iFixit is calling this an “unprecedented degree of miniaturisation”. But that’s not all iFixit got from the tear-down.
A few months ago I praised the Motorola and its Moto Z for bringing about a ‘much-needed revolution’ in smartphone innovation. Despite being a decent flagship, last year’s flagship Moto Z was also the first device to feature attachments that snap on to the back of the unit and transform it into different types of devices.
Call of Duty has returned to its roots with the recent launch of Call Of Duty: WWII. We sat down with Dave Swenson, Audio Director at Sledgehammer Games, at the launch in Dubai and had a chat about what went into developing the game, its new advanced AI mechanics and Second World War guns. What would you say to someone who’s never played a Call Of Duty game in their life? Would they be able to jump straight into COD WWII? COD WWII was created as a very diverse game with multiple modes.
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".
