Vimeo won’t launch a subscription service after all

Vimeo has decided not to launch the subscription video service it announced in a shareholder letter last November and planned to unveil sometime in 2018.

The letter outlined Vimeo’s intention to spend tens of millions on new original content in an effort to “follow in Netflix’s footsteps,” but according to The Hollywood Reporter, that plan has been completely abandoned and the development team tasked with the project has been disbanded. The announcement comes as a bit of a surprise, as Vimeo just hired Paramount Pictures’ Alana Mayo to head its original content division in March.

The first Vimeo-funded web series High Maintenance was incredibly popular and later became a half-hour drama on HBO. The next high-profile series, with…

Nintendo’s SNES Classic has a confusingly named Final Fantasy game

Nintendo’s SNES Classic announcement this morning means 21 stellar retro games are coming back in a mini-console bundle this September. The list includes some obvious favorites, like The Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past, Super Metroid, and Earthbound. But one notable addition worth pointing out is Final Fantasy III, which most North American gamers might not recognize because of a localization name change.

In Japan, Final Fantasy III is actually the excellent Final Fantasy VI, making the SNES Classic a great way to replay the iconic role-playing title, or try it out for the first time. FFVI is widely considered one of the best, if not the best, in the series for its sprawling…

Afghanistan U-19 cricket team to train in Chennai before embarking to Singapore for WC qualifiers

Afghanistan

The Afghanistan cricket team will train here ahead of the Under-19 World Cup qualifiers to be held in Singapore next month.

The 18-member team along with six support staff would begin training at the CSS-Whatmore Centre for Cricket at Sri Ramachandra Medical College (SRMC) campus from tomorrow.

The decision to train in Chennai was taken keeping in mind the similarity of conditions on offer in Singapore, M Sanjay, head of cricketing operations at the facility, told PTI today.

Earlier it was planned to sent the under-19 team to Noida where the Afghanistan senior team has its training base.

However, Afghanistan Cricket Board, which was aware of the state-of-the-art facilities available at SRMC, chose to send the team for a 19-day preparatory camp, he said.

“The Afghan board chose Chennai, specifically CSS-Whatmore Centre because of the quality of facilities available here and also because the conditions here would be similar to those in Singapore, where the WC qualifiers are to be held,” Sanjay, a former Tamil Nadu team coach said.

The Afghan under-19 team will train here and also play some matches against local Second Division teams and a combined XI comprising some promising players.

“The Afghanistan players will have net sessions and centre wicket practice and also …read more

Yves Béhar designed a headband to help you sleep

A startup called Rythm has announced Dreem, a device designed by Yves Béhar that will supposedly help you sleep better. The very sleek device uses white noise via bone conduction to help you get to sleep quicker. It monitors your brain function during deep sleep and synchronizes it with “sound stimulations” that the company says will improve your deep sleep by up to 32 percent.

Dreem can also work as an alarm to wake you up, without alerting your partner with the blaring alarm we’ve all become accustomed to. All of this can be controlled from the app, which is available on Android and iOS. Until July 15th, Dreem will be available for preorder for $399, before a price hike will go into effect. Rythm says…

Nintendo curated the perfect selection of games for the SNES Classic

When Nintendo released the NES Classic last year, it came bundled with a surprisingly robust collection of 30 games. They ran the gamut from classics like the original Super Mario Bros. trilogy to more obscure titles like StarTropics, striking a nice balance that covered a wide range of experiences for the 8-bit console. And now, with the just-announced SNES Classic, the company has taken things a step further.

The SNES Classic lineup is just about perfect. It’s a bit smaller than the NES Classic, with a total of 21 games compared to the original’s 30. But the 21 games are substantial: almost every single one is a blockbuster of its day. The roster includes some of the best games Nintendo has ever made, like Super Metroid, Super Mario…

Why aren’t you using Tinder to see who from your high school would date you now?

Here’s a feature of Tinder I thought more people — at least some people — were aware of: you can use it to see which jerks from your high school, who ignored you for years, would actually like to date you now. Turns out people don’t know this, and that’s not okay.

Here’s how it works. You just go back to your hometown on a routine trip to visit your parents, siblings, and whichever parking lots are emotionally significant to you. While you’re there, leave the Discover setting on your Tinder app turned on. Do not turn it off! This step is pretty easy because you don’t even have to remember to do anything; the setting is on by default.

Then, when you get back to whatever city you actually live in now, and…

Bigger hail might pummel the US as climate change gathers more force

Last month, hailstones as big as baseballs pounded the Denver area, knocking down power lines, damaging homes, and smashing through windshields “like tissue paper,” The Washington Post reported. The hailstorm hit during rush hour, when lots of cars where on the road, and ended up being Colorado’s costliest catastrophe, totaling $1.4 billion in damages. But if climate change goes unchecked, we might see more of these extreme hailstorms in the future, according to new research.
