The Association of the German Internet Industry, eco (http://international.eco.de), is releasing its Registrar Atlas 2013 just in time for the start of the new generic Top Level Domains (gTLDs). In the third edition of the largest international study of the Domain Industry, eco has investigated the chances of success the domain providers of the new gTLDs like .web, .blog or .mail will have.
Lawyer Thomas Rickert, Director of the Competence Group Names and Numbers in the eco Association, is convinced: "Good domains are already like an address on Park Avenue. With the introduction of the new gTLDs, a lot of new virtual properties in top locations will be created."
For the Registrar Atlas, companies providing domain names in 8 countries were surveyed - with the support of local partners. Alongside the German-speaking countries (the D-A-CH region) and the Netherlands, for the first time France, Great Britain, Bulgaria and Russia were included. "The Registrar Atlas is growing from year to year, and shows how the companies of the domain industry are distributed, what the similarities and differences of the markets are, and what the trends are," said Rickert. According to the study, the new geographical expansions like .moscow and .nyc and generic endings like .radio or .sport can expect especially high popularity. Well over a third (37%) of German domain providers rate the new gTLDs with (...).

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.
Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...
Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.
"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...
The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.
Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...
The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...
Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.
Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
