+David Belliveau I think he just believed the mainstream media that it was a ghost town and he just stopped using it. Sad really as, as you say, Google+ solved a lot of the issues that other social networks still have. It would be good to see him posting again and it saddens me every time he comes off with the line that G+ died.

Both Bill and Leo have a wonderful way of taking the most difficult of all of scenarios and explaining them so that non tech-savvy people like me can enjoy.

+Brandon Eaker​ no he's not. Leo is a paid off. Just look at all the greats who left there's a reason no one likes Leo anymore. I have no personal hated or anything towards him. Just stating some facts out there. Sad really I used to love Leo twit network listened none stop, but now its just horrible. Floss weekly is the only show left that's worth watching.

I just finished watching all your vacation 360 videos using Gear VR and I have to say it's a strain on my eyes since its a bit shaky and blury. I wonder if it's better using Cardboard since I think it gives you the option for low and high resolution. Maybe Gear VR is using the low res version? (you can only see it with Gear VR web browser and go to YouTube) There is no option available for low and high res. So I'm not sure if the blurryness is from YouTube or the camera quality is bad. If anyone has both Cardboard and Gear VR, I'd love to know!
