Amazon has long struggled in China, where it holds less than 1% of the online shopping market due to fierce competition from local rivals. The company, however, thinks it still has a chance in the world’s second largest economy. Lately, the Seattle-based giant is preparing to have another go in the country, where a number of western technology firms – including Google, Twitter and ride-hailing firm Uber –were forced to retreat amid challenging regulatory and competitive environments.
Apple has launched the most revolutionary iPhone in a decade, but even that isn’t enough to help the company regain its former glory in China . The Cupertino, California-based smartphone giant has been in need of better iPhones to help it recover lost ground in the country and repeat its success from back in 2015, when Chinese consumers flocked to the company’s large screen and gold-colored iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, leading to a 70% jump in shipment in the world’s largest smartphone market.
For years, Apple and Samsung have ruled the high-end phone market, launching devices with advanced features that other players can only aim to follow. Now, however, one Chinese phone manufacturer is going all-out to change that. Huawei, which stifled the iPhone’s momentum in China to become the world’s third largest smartphone maker last year, has set its sights on competing with Apple and Samsung for the attention of wealthy shoppers in Europe and the U.S.
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".
