LONDRA, December 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

 

Secondo un sondaggio di Hotels.com la Grande Mela è la meta più amata al mondo per il divertimento notturno,

anche se gli Italiani preferiscono di gran lunga la movida di Barcellona

Chi non ha ancora deciso dove trascorrere il Capodanno ed è in cerca dei migliori divertimenti, dovrebbe sapere che, secondo un sondaggio condotto da  Hotels.com, leader nella prenotazione di hotel online, New York  è la città migliore per gli amanti della vita notturna. 27.000 viaggiatori in tutto il mondo hanno infatti incoronato la Grande Mela come città ideale per chi cerca divertimenti e locali notturni. Al secondo posto si trova Las Vegas, paradiso dei giocatori d'azzardo, mentre il terzo gradino del podio è stato conquistato da Londra.

Nonostante le prime due posizioni della classifica siano occupate da località statunitensi, secondo il sondaggio di Hotels.com ben sei città  all'interno della top 10 appartengono al Vecchio Continente; insieme a Londra, sono infatti tra le più amate dai viaggiatori anche Parigi, Barcellona, Berlino, Amsterdam e Madrid. Bangkok, l'unica città asiatica in classifica, occupa la decima posizione.

Guardando le risposte dei nostri connazionali, invece,si scopre che gli Italiani hanno preferito la movida  di Barcellona ai divertimenti notturni della Grande Mela. La città catalana e le sue famose Ramblas hanno infatti conquistato il favore degli Italiani amanti della vita notturna, che l'hanno eletta città migliore del mondo per divertimenti notturni davanti a New York. Al terzo posto fra le città preferite dagli Italiani per la nightlife  si trova Milano: i tanti locali sulle rive del Naviglio o le discoteche di Corso Como hanno permesso al capoluogo lombardo di guadagnare la prima posizione tra le città italiane, seguita da Roma al quarto posto.

"New York e Las Vegas sono da sempre città che offrono straordinarie esperienze di viaggio. Ma è soprattutto la varietà dell'offerta europea a rendere le città del Vecchio Continente interessanti per i viaggiatori", commenta Alison Couper di Hotels.com. "L'Europa offre infatti molte esperienze differenti: dalle notti alternative nei club di Berlino, ai ristoranti e i coffee shop di Amsterdam, passando per i piccoli locali di Parigi dove ascoltare musica dal vivo."

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robin Raymond, Chief Architect at Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services ...
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user's habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems at Red Hat, described how to revolutioniz...

The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs.

It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
