  • Zillow to offer easy 3D house tour creation, viewing with new iPhone app

    This brings back memories. The first paying web job I had 20+ yrs ago was creating a QuickTime VR tour of my university. The panoramas were taken with a 640x480 QuickTake 150 on a special tripod head. The photos were then stitched together in a very long process with a piece of software I can’t even find reference to anymore. You then created zones (like the arrows in this tool) to zoom to the next pano. Now someone with their phone and no tech knowledge can do the same thing with better results!

    The 32GB or 64GB are sad, but I don't care since I'll use a NAS connected and use the 55" LG 4K HDR ready tv and not bother with the streaming until CLink meets its goals. Of course, I'd buy FIOS but Verizon isn't available.
    If you don't have a current Apple TV, you may not realize this but movies are not stored on the device at all. They are streamed. This means it's just the apps that are taking up the space. I got the Gen4 with 64GB, and even with several kids games on it, we aren't close to being full. All the usual things that take up space on a phone or tablet (movies, photos, email) aren't stored.
