Tek4 tools have been hitting Home Depot stores. It was a very eye-opening set of challenges. I am interested in seeing how consumers will react to the products. We went for a more machined, high metal design. It is good to have a development team that trusts the ID team.

PS- Highly recommend the flashlight which is solid and bright as heck.

Hey Parel,

Will you be attending the AWFS fair in Vegas?

Yeah- that plug is really pretty nice. Pretty simple. I wonder why current plugs are so bulky.

Fred: No I wont be there at AWFS, but I am sure some folks from my company will. Will you? Are you still in Phoenix?

I've been waiting to see what made it through! Great work.

Great work, Thomas. I was just in a Home Depot making a much less glorious purchase (new toilet!) when I saw the new Ryobi line on display. My wife waited patiently while I checked out the new stuff. (She's more and more patient when I examine stuff I or a friend has designed.)

Great update to Ryobi's offerings. I was quite close to purchasing the light, by the way.

I'll be at the AWFS fair checking out the goods.

On a different note, sorry about the linked-in spam.. I imported my contact list from google and I guess Linked-in goes hog wild and invites EVERYBODY!

I'm so embarrassed.
