Plex Live TV is now available to users of Apple TV and Android, who join iOS users in the ability to watch live television programming, including sports and local news, from within their Plex apps. Today's launch also brings time shifting support, allowing viewers to pause/play, rewind, and fast forward Plex Live TV. Launched in June, Live TV requires the purchase of a Plex Pass subscription and digital tuner hardware to tap into that free over-the-air television signal.
Apple's ecosystem just got a little bit less sticky thanks to Google's location sharing app launching on iOS. Trusted Contacts was launched on Android in December, allowing friends and family to see and request your location — even when offline by showing your last known position. With its inclusion in both the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store, now anyone in the smartphone duopoly can keep track of their loved ones.
In world gone mad, where every mediocrity is exalted as "incredible," "huge," and "the most insane thing ever," only one man is brave enough to call a 3 minute and 45 second advertisement for Apple's voice assistant a "movie." That man is Dwayne Johnson, and the so-called movie is The Rock x Siri: Dominate The Day, now available to watch on Apple's YouTube channel. The ad was promoted over the weekend with a tweet from Johnson calling it the "biggest, coolest, sexiest, funnest movie ever."
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".
