Where's a link to the reply?? Shouldn't we place such comments in context; so as to confirm their not just "show boating"?

I'm not sure how the Chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank, could effect labor policy's and job reform bills; which are clearly the House and Senate's responsibility to author & enact; but I'd love to hear the response!

They go from vague, apprehensive, naive speculation & and sounding rather ignorant about any aspect of this emergent tech, to being silenced by a (poorly executed & planned) demo experience.
...Quite an "impressive" Leo Laport moment... (Eye roll)

The "world according to Tod", is a hilarious, fiction!!! Bwaaa!
...Scary to think this maniac is considered a "leader" in the lives of many people within the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. :-(
...Sad, really!

Don't doubt it +Anthony Tucci. There are strange, delusional types of individuals on all sides of the spectrum. Nevertheless, that sad fact, doesn't change the shame in "following" or condoning such denial based schools of thought. ...Does it?

The only thing missing, was the final step, required to easily position/transfer your Apk, or Virtual Environment, directly on the Note 4 (within the Gear VR Library & Core UI interface,) itself, for autonomous viewing and "testing"...?

And hey, let's not be "lazy" after posting such a GREAT video!! (Stated somewhat jokingly of course about the "lazy" part! **THE VIDEO IS TRULY INVALUABLE! Thank you!)
...Nevertheless, where are the "quick links" in your Video Description above, to all the required software and driver items mentioned in the video? ...And where is a copy of the < text >, for the required modifications which must be added to the manifest file??  
(Heck, where is the manifest files itself actually located??  ~ Sorry, a bit of a "Newbie" to this particular workflow.  And I'm just being tong & cheek, while looking a gift horse in the mouth! ...not meant in an unappreciative tone; just being silly.)
;-)

Let's make this posting a "one stop shop" for all of us "wan-a-bees", who are wishing to diver right in!!  Therefore, it would be great to have the bullet text of the "minimum requirements & settings"; you included at the first, within your PowerPoint; also placed within the Video Descriptions notes as well... please!  ...I'll owe ya!

(Do you like how I say "let's", when I'm really referring to "you", Mark Schoennagel??)  (jk)
In all seriousness, THANKS! - this video is an exceptional resource and asset!  
...Thanks so much for posting it, and summarizing all the info!!

Amazing...
 
New Body Scanner Reveals Bones, Organs in Detail
On Wednesday, images of the first clinical trial of a next generation body scanner with extreme high definition are released by General Electric (link below).

In 2013, scientists and engineers at GE Healthcare and GE Global Research introduced Revolution CT, a scanner that uses narrow beam of X-rays to create slices of the body and assemble them into detailed 3D images.  Its combination of low-dose exposure, organ-wide coverage and motion correction technology allows doctors to reduce radiation and still obtain high-resolution images of blood vessels, soft tissue, organs and bones. 

The team at West Kendall Baptist Hospital applied the machine in 2014 and recently completed the world’s first six-month clinical trial of the Revolution CT machine.

“According to our physicians, patient feedback about their experience with the Revolution CT has been uniformly positive,” said West Kendall Baptist Hospital CEO Javier Hernández-Lichtl. “The advanced design definitely makes for a less intimidating, more comfortable patient experience, while yielding amazingly accurate and detailed images.”

Truly an inspiration!
We should all strive to work as hard for the dreams and goals we have!
...For a special, exhilarating, sub-culture of humanity; a life of being lazy or cowardly, just isn't enough!  THANK GOODNESS! :-D

This product line needs to drastically needs to drastically increase its resolution!
The alternative stitched "Franken Pictures" as the salesman calls them, allows for MUCH higher quality results!
Diluting a single 1920x1080 video frame across an entire 360 degree FOV is unacceptable!  
At a minimum they should have started with 4K video resolution!

Their page says 6480x1080, but agree that a 4k mode might have been in order. Also, the scuba claim is bs, their page says ip67 (1meter for 30min), so unless you plan on scuba diving in your bathtub that's a no no...

Super nice video!!  

I hope you don't mind if I ask for a bit of advice, via this comments section??
...I'm a proud Samsung Gear VR owner; and I'm anxious to successfully experience my installation of Vanguard V on my device.  While I have installed, uninstalled and re-installed Vanguard V, as a preliminary measure to fix my issues; so far, I'm sad to report I have had 100% success running every other Gear VR app tested thus far, with the one exceptions of executing Vanguard V, which only results in a black screen for an indeterminate period of time. (I've never out waited it, beyond 5-10 minutes!)

The device is not completely hung however, because I am still able to hold the back button and view the default menu; and select to return to the "home" screen.

Any thoughts as to what might be snagging my device in this way, when trying to execute Vanguard V??  ...anxious to dive in!  GREAT WORK... And a wonderful job sharing your production/optimization experience with us on this video! :-D

The food is okay most of the time; however, THE WAIT IS HORRIBLE! It is like they parked a food truck to the side of this restaurant and just asked one or two guys to do their best to keep up with the orders! And guess what...? THEY CAN'T! The trick is, to ask the waitress to mark everything as an appetizer, and tell her y'all will order more later. I swear! Then she puts an *Asterisk* buy you entree item when she hangs the order in the tiny kitchen. (It's the only way you'll see your food, anytime soon. Specifically, this way your nachos or flautas will come in about 35 minutes, versus 55-65!) And yes, the mentions the other reviews make about getting nickled and dimed for every basket of chips or order of hot sauce is also true. But if your in the mood for slow, costly, Mexican food; this place will probably please you. And there are less Mexican restaurants on the island than there were a month ago. So your choices are somewhat limited. (Personally, I would head down the road to Verde instead.)

Excellent place for a yummy meal! ...Simply a GREAT Island value! (...despite one other reviewer's claim that pricing was "high". Their wrong!) Service is always good & very friendly!! The waiter is always good to make suggestions, if you can't decide. If your visiting the Island, this is a very good lunch or dinner option during your excursions. This is a family establishment; not a national chain, with wait staff assigned to each section of tables; so don't make odd comparisons when you arrive. Just relax and enjoy your meal, and you will be served and on your way in a similar time-frame to any other dining experience. :-)
