Court Awards Grumpy Cat's Owner $700k. Cat's Percentage Unknown

The court has ruled in favour of Grumpy Cat (real name: Tardar Sauce… no, really) and awarded her owner $710,001 in damages. Meeeow. Kitty’s owner has claws too.

Summer Vine?
We hadn’t heard anything since V2 (formerly known as Vine) announced that the community forums were going live… until now. One of its co-creators, Dom Hoffman, has confirmed that V2 will arrive sometime in 2018, most likely in the summer. Other details on the born-again platform include fullscreen video format (with a focus on vertical and horizontal video) and uploads allowed from a smartphone’s camera roll.
