Roomba gets thumbs up


Ashley’s been playing with the new Roomba this week and he’s utterly sold. Apparently, it’s far better than the original version, and he can now see the carpet in his study for the first time in years. The dog wasn’t best pleased with it though and he’s broken his cleaner’s heart.

He’s reviewed it for the Guardian and had this to say about it "the new model is effective at sucking up dirt and can detect when it is stuck and initiate an escape. It also goes under beds and sofas and will mesmerise you and your pets. It doesn’t vacuum stairs but, given its very competitive price of around £199, the Roomba has become more than a luxury item for gadget obsessives – honest."
