Right now is the perfect storm of updates. In addition to the seemingly endless stream of operating system (OS) updates, there are updates for applications and now updates for your hardware. We've all become used to the monthly release of patches to Microsoft Windows to the point where we expect Patch Tuesday every month. But now there's more. Security researchers uncovered problems with Intel's Management Engine, which lives in its own little OS inside Intel processors.
It turns out that Intel’s fix for its processor security issues needs a fix of its own. In a statement released on Jan. 22, Intel senior vice president Navin Shenoy, reversed course in an update that tells Intel customers to stop applying patches to fix a speculative execution flaw, widely known as Spectre. According to a note released by Shenoy, Intel has discovered the root cause of a series of random reboots that has afflicted servers running mostly older Intel processors.
ANALYSIS: All the signs point to the US capital being the home of Amazon’s second headquartersThe much anticipated short list of places that Amazon plans to evaluate as the location for its second headquarters is out and there are only a couple of surprises. Perhaps the biggest surprise is that there are a few areas on that list that don’t really meet the web retailing giant’s stated requirements.
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".
