That's how you do business email!

I got a fairly standard "business news blast" email from +TabloTV yesterday.  What's not so standard is the line, "If you have any questions about this, feel free to reply to this email."  It seems so simple, but it's so refreshing.  To be able to just reply to a company's email and not have to deal with "no-reply" email addresses is customer service at it's best.  Thank you, +TabloTV!

Nope.  But they're a great alternative to that company.  That was actually part of what they  talked about.  With +TabloTV, you connect it to YOUR antenna and host it all on YOUR hardware.  But it does allow you to stream your TV signal to any device as well as it working at a DVR.

Anyone else notice that post from people you don't follow, don't share communities with, and post that aren't "What's Hot" are creeping into your main feed?  It's happening for me and I don't like it at all.  I thought Google+ allowed me to control what I wanted to see and what I wanted other people to see.  Now I see what Google thinks I want to see (or maybe what they want me to see)...

Unless it's "What's Hot" posts that aren't labeled as such anymore...

Brite-Strike EPLI Flashlight Review
My review of the Brite-Strike EPLI flashlight for +Firearms Insider, part of the +Firearms Radio Network.

#EDC   #2A   #Flashlight   #Review   #BriteStrike  
By Steve Kirkpatrick. The Brite-Strike EPLI (Executive Precision Lighting Instrument) is a great (slightly larger than) pen sized flashlight. At 5.125″ long and just over .5″ wide this is a small yet surprisingly bright pocket flashlight. I think carrying a flashlight is one of those things that ...

Knife Sharpening Tool(s)/Method(s)
Could someone(s) tell me what the best way(s) to sharpen this knife would be?  I have a stone kit (Smith's SK2 2-Stone Sharpening Kit, https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000B5JXU2?tag=stevrkirk-20&camp=0&creative=0&linkCode=as4&creativeASIN=B000B5JXU2&adid=15RJ7Z248M329JRQCEQG&) that I use for my pocket knives, but I feel like there must be a better method for a knife like this.  I'd appreciate any helpful input on this.  Thanks!

+Steve Kirkpatrick one think you don't want to do is remove the natural pitina (blackening of the blade) but rust can be removed safely. there are many ways to sharpen your blade to get your desired result. but YOU are the one that has to find the one that works for you.
