He figures they were stolen by someone looking to sell them for a few dollars to buy drugs. I hope they catch them, he said. Thats sad when you steal from someone who cant see. The items did not turn up during a check of local pawn shops, said Meridian Deputy Police Chief Tracy Basterrechea. Unfortunately, every year around Christmastime it seems like something like this happens, Basterrechea said. It makes you angry that someone could be so callous.

With the table saw off, he puts his fingers over the opening in the table and slowly brings the blade up to the right height, feeling how far it rises above the piece of wood he wants to cut. He then moves the guide in place, plugs in the saw, turns it on and pushes the piece of wood across the spinning blade. I feel and keep my hands away from the blade. I still have all of my fingers, so I must be pretty careful, Gibson said, laughing. Gibson has been around woodworking most of his life.

Nest and Dropcam have both succeeded in the smart home spacespecifically because they are standalone products, but Revolv is a whole other beast. It was an ecosystem product.
