      Yeah, definitely an improvement on the original. Is the new Skype logo in the video?

    Whatever update Microsoft did to allow Flash in IE10 desktop stopped all Vimeo videos from showing. So I have to Firefox to view them.

      well vimeo Works perfectly fine here. Ie10 in Windows 8. but maybe you have Windows 7.

      • PoohGQ

        Actually I’m running Windows 8. It all started when MS updated Flash to run in IE10. Had no problems before then..

      • PoohGQ

        I found out what the problem was..Some of the tracking protection lists are very stringent and block Vimeo and some YouTube videos from displaying.

      Works fine for me too. Windows 8 Pro with IE10 desktop and Metro RT mode.

    anyone think it looks like gps symbol?

  • grs_dev

    It looks like a boomerang. Which kind of makes sense. It looks like it can fly… take off… very inspiring and very memorable.
