Amazon’s checkout-free supermarket, Amazon Go, will finally open its doors to members of the public after more than a year of testing with its own employees. The project, which is designed to modernise physical retail, currently only has a store in Seattle. Instead of expanding Amazon Go to new locations, Amazon will open up its doors to the Seattle branch and allow registered Amazon Go customers to use the store as their regular supermarket.

A new breakthrough in ultrasonics has researchers believing we’re not that far away from a reality where large objects, including humans, could levitate through the power of sound alone. No, this doesn’t mean you’ll be able to fly using ultrasonics like Banshee from X-Men, but a new breakthrough could lead to a world of new possibilities in manufacturing and medicine.
@scully1888 It's really down to pot luck how fortunate you are on the screen you get too. Some are worse than others. Updates have sorted some of the issues around flickering or the always on screen. I'm a big fan of my 2XL but it's just worth knowing what you're spending money on!
@scully1888 That's my take too tbh. You do get odd ghosting when scrolling with blacks when in night mode. And I don't really notice the blue tint shifting, I also prefer the lack of saturation too, but that's a Pixel 2 and 2XL thing.
@scully1888 I do. I'm currently using it and I like it a lot. However, they do come with some screen issues. I can overlook them as I got the phone via review, but I'd strongly suggest getting the Pixel 2 instead of the Pixel 2 XL.
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".
