The YouTube channel EverythingApplePro decided it would be fun to take every single iPad model ever created — all 12 of them right up to the new 9.7-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro — and compare them through a series of speed, power, and Wi-Fi tests.

All you’ll need is $30,000 worth of components and a couple engineers to assemble one of your own.

He identifies three major challenging areas that Facebook had to deal with to ensure that Surround 360 video would be high-quality and artifact-free: creating a sense of depth, synchronizing the cameras, Continue reading
