Introducing the dailyPlanet5D news – Your ‘One Stop Moon’ for Video/Photo/Gear/People News

by planetMitch

I thought I'd start something new for 2017 (and I know I'm a bit early LOL but I was hoping to get some feedback on the idea… you like?)

planet5D has always been about sharing and curating the important news – but sometimes we don't have time to do a full blown story – but maybe you want to read the important news…

And heck, I couldn't just use a cliché (one stop SHOP) without making it a little planet5Desque could I? HA!

so here's our list of the dailyPlanet5D news: (everyone gets the Superman reference right? <grin>)
