My view of this week's releases

The biggest release this week is no doubt .nyc. The new dot city TLDs (especially .berlin and .london) have been very succesful. Given that many local businesses cater only to locals, then this is a great extension. There is no doubt that Google will pay attention to them in their ranking (even though they haven't said anything, but hey, Google is all about relevant results.) If you have business interests in New York you should definetely apply in the Landrush period. Prices are higher, but there are some great domains on offer.
