Steelseries is serious about giving your gaming audio a sonic step up: its new Arctis Pro headset comes with its own dedicated DAC, which is Hi-Res certified for 24-bit/96kHz streaming straight from your PC or PS4. The cans themselves have drivers capable of 40,000Hz frequencies, which is twice as sensitive as your typical gaming gear. High quality materials match hi-res audio, with a mix of aluminium, steel and soft-touch rubber adding a touch of class.
Amazon just made it that little bit easier to ditch your phone line - as long as you've got an Echo in your house, or the Alexa app on your mobile device. Messaging, voice and video calling just went live on Fire, Android and iOS tablets, letting you ring up anyone in your address book directly from your Echo, or through the Alexa app, whether they are at home or out on the move.
Hanging a giant telly on your wall is great and all, but unless you're actually watching something on it, you've essentially decorated your room with a monolithic black square. Samsung's 2018 QLED TVs can smarten up your sitting room with Ambient mode, turning that space into a virtual art gallery instead. You can pick between photos, patterns, and colours, or even match your wallpaper with a smartphone app.
Closing in on one week left working for @StuffTV (and writing about tech in general) - want something reviewed/have celebratory cake you'd like to send my way? Better get in touch soon, because I'll be all about automotive in about eight days
Plenty of good looking metal on show here - but what is going on with those seats on the Aston Martin Lagonda? It looks like Gaydon skinned Fozzie Bear for its latest concept https://youtu.be/xXtMJhCcm0E
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".
