I love Vimeo, it is very different, almost every video uploaded is beautiful and there is no room for cat videos. But the design of the website desperately needed a bit of revamping and gladly Vimeo is doing just that. Getting rid of the clutter and simplifying the accessibility are a welcome change. The changes made bring in an overall different look but also packs half a dozen backend and front-end updates. Some of these include ...

Here are some of the wise words that are featured in the Manifesto: “This is your life. Do what you love, and do it often. If you don’t like something, change it. If you ...

This video is insane! The whole concept is very creative and the way they implemented it was amazing, considering its not a professional company that made this but a group of guys called Corridor Digital. The special effects rival those of big budget movies, and the way it was filmed with the slow motion shots and the dramatic angles makes it seem like a real life anime! The best part is how the soundtrack fits ...

This video made my day! These two twins named Jeremeh and Justin are seriously one of the cutest kids I’ve ever seen. They way they shake and dance around is serious business.

If you need some cheering up, this is guaranteed to do the job.
