Back in August, I submitted a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for a bunch of films held by the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA). We looked at one yesterday from 1976 about nuclear extortion, and we'll explore the others in the coming weeks. But there was one that I requested that the NNSA can't seem to find. The title? "Skull Melting Demonstration".

Video: Looking back at older versions of software makes you wonder how we even managed to use them years ago. Dusty iterations of programs like Word, Excel and even Photoshop were crude as hell by today's standards. But what if Snapchat — Mark Zuckerberg's favourite ephemeral app — had existed on desktop computers in the '90s? It probably would have been simpler to use, actually.
We're all disappearing under a virtual avalanche of photos and videos, and no one's really sure about how to organise it all — though Apple and Google keep trying. Android and iOS both have smart photo services built in nowadays, but what happens when you want to jump from one to the other? Here's what you need to know.

If you've got an iPhone, stay wary of any suspicious links that your friends or enemies might send you any time soon.

Video: The grim dark future of the 41st century needs a weapon as ludicrously gritty as the setting of Warhammer 40,000 — and the chainsword, standard melee weapon of the hulking Space Marines, definitely fits the bill. But now such a silly weapon has been made in our reality, and it's just as awesome.
Video: Watch it on a big, high-resolution screen and 4K video looks awesome. 12K video is even more incredible — even though we don't have screens that can show it off to its full potential yet — because it means you're able to zoom in to a tiny portion of the frame and still see perfect detail. Shot by Joe Capra of Scientifantastic, this 100-megapixel time-lapse of Los Angeles, shot on a camera worth more than $100,000, shows just how amazing high-res video can be.
Video: Ben Ridgway's specialty is creating flawlessly repeating animations that can be left on loop forever if you're trying to intentionally trigger the worst acid flashback you've ever experienced — minus the acid. Continuum Infinitum has no beginning and no end, just an infinite zoom into a never-ending abyss of trippy mind-melting shapes.
