If my grandmother decides not to move in with us, I'm going to convince the family to get her one of these. She can't lift the vacuum anymore, nor can she lift a full bucket. The Roomba and Scooba are perfect for people in her situation.

Pulling out the Grandma Card, eh? I know better than to argue with that!

/I'm no luddite, but this makes me kind of sad.

But why? It gets dust off floors. It keeps cat hair under control. The chip inside it is lower-tech, lower-powered, and stupider than the chip in the My Real Baby.

I don't know ... maybe because people are fetishing inanimate objects, and treating them as pets, which weirds me out. Maybe because the world would be better off if those clothes were donated to a needy baby instead. Maybe because the Roomba represents another step away from authenticy. Maybe because a mop and bucket costs $9, and a Roomba costs $399.
