The Start menu has changed a lot over the years, but there are a handful of common elements that have made it all the way from Windows 95 to Windows 10. We fired up some virtual machines and traveled back in time to before there was a Start menu to track its evolution from the mid '90s to now.

An anonymous reader writes: High Speed cinematography

In high-speed photography, the photograph is captured in such a manner to block the motion, mainly to decrease the blurring effect. A series of photographs are to be taken with a faster frame rate. The sensitivity of the sensor must be high along with a very efficient shuttering unit. The second function needs some specific ways of shooting subsequent pictures, either with the help of a mechanical unit or with the assistance of robust electronic sensors at a faster rate.
