Imagine My Surprise

I can’t believe it, but I agree with Stuyvesant Parker:

At the end of the day, to the user, there is no difference between YouTube and Vimeo. Except that Vimeo has always been nicer overall than YouTube in order to differentiate themselves, and now they might be getting recognized for that. Only problem is the more interesting story is the Google/Apple rivalry, so no one is talking about Vimeo.

Good analysis. I disagree that a user doesn’t care one way or the other, mostly because YouTube is synonymous with video on the web. But everything else is spot-on.
