  1. The giroptic quality looks almost as bad as the one shot 360 lenses we clipped on our digicams 5 years ago.

  2. Its a shame what happened to the LA Times real estate section; I thought that was one of the best real estate sections in the nation.

    For awhile, I didn't know what happened when I looked for that section. But, they've seen folded in some of that real estate information into its Sunday business section.
