A computer file is a self-contained resource for recording data in a digital storage device, that is available for computer programs to access. A filesystem refers to data structures and methods that an operating system uses to keep track of files on a disk or partition. Because access to files in a file system is an important way that computers interact with data, having all relevant data in files in a common file system makes it easier to process and use this data.
The Toshiba memory unit saga gets more and more complicated. After failing to reach an agreement with Western Digital by the end of August, Toshiba said that it has signed an MOU to sell its memory unit to a consortium led by U.S. private equity company, Bain Capital and Korean flash memory manufacturer SK Hynix. The reported offer from this group is for about $22 B. At the same time, Toshiba indicated that it did not rule out a deal with other suitors, including Western Digital.
I attended the first Mobile World Congress in San Francisco looking for digital storage solutions and applications—after all, that is what I do. Mobile World Congress has been held for many years in Barcelona, Spain and is a very popular show for product and service introductions associated with phones and other mobile devices. Of course, the Apple iPhone X and iPhone 8 announcement was held the same time as MWC.
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".
