After what felt like a millennium and a half, Android Oreo is finally available for US models of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus. Unfortunately, Verizon appears to be the only carrier rolling it out for the time being. The update also introduces Samsung Experience 9.0, which comes as standard on the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus.
Google’s rebranding of Android Wear to Wear OS might not have been entirely surprising, but it was still noteworthy. Less noteworthy are the changes with Wear OS, since there are none. Because of that, Google‘s list of Android Wear smartwatches that will get the Wear OS update is almost identical to the December list of smartwatches that would get Android 8.0 Oreo.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus are now on sale, and pre-ordered devices are now starting to make their way to early buyers. Unfortunately, some buyers have been receiving their Galaxy S9 units with Verizon SIM cards, even though they were ordered with Sprint SIM cards. This is according to Brandon of YouTube channel This is Tech Today, who was supposed to get a Sprint SIM card with his Galaxy S9. Instead, he ended up with a Verizon SIM card that is completely useless to him.
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".
