LONDON, December 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
27.000 rejsende fra hele verden har stemt på New York som bedste by for natteliv
Lider man af søvnløshed, leder man efter gode nytårsløjer, eller har man bare ubændig lyst til en vild nat i byen? Så er det måske relevant at vide, at New York er byen, hvor man finder verdens bedste natteliv! Det viser en undersøgelse foretaget af hoteleksperten Hotels.com blandt 27.000 deltagere fra det meste af verden.
The Big Apple er verdens bedste by, hvis man vil have en rigtig god bytur!
27.000 rejsende fra det meste af verden har således stemt byen, der aldrig sover, ind på førstepladsen over de storbyer, som man kan have den bedste fest i. New York er dermed suverænt den bedste party-by i verden. Hernæst følger gamblerparadiset Las Vegas og urbane London.
Det viser en undersøgelse foretaget af hoteleksperten Hotels.com.
Europa er bedst til fest
Undersøgelsen viser også, at selvom både første- og andenpladsen på listen går til byer i USA, så er de seks ud af de ti bedste nattelivs-byer europæiske.
Både London, Paris, Barcelona, Berlin, Amsterdam og Madrid er således repræsenteret i top 10. Mens Los Angeles og Bangkok, som den eneste asiatiske by, indtager niende- og tiendepladsen.
"New York og Las Vegas er byer, hvor man altid er garanteret et godt rejseeventyr. Men det er forskelligheden i de europæiske byer, der gør dem så interessante og spændende for rejsende fra hele verden," mener Alison Couper fra Hotels.com og fortsætter:
"Der er derfor også mange forskellige oplevelser at hente på tværs af Europa, uanset om det er en nat på en af de berygtede klubber i Berlin, middag på en flydende restaurant eller hygge på coffee shop i Amsterdam eller et besøg på en af Paris' små, intime barer og spillesteder."
Danskerne har den bedste fest i London
Danskerne er da heller ikke nødvendigvis enige i, at New York er det bedste sted at feste. På den danske top 10 indtager New York nemlig en fjerdeplads - efter både London, Berlin og Paris.
På femtepladsen udpeger vi desuden København, der ikke figurerer på listen over bedste party-byer i den globale undersøgelse.
Top 10: Verdens bedste by til natteliv:
- New York
- Las Vegas
- Los Angeles
Danskernes top 10:

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
