Scooba: on our third in less than a year
We just received our third Scooba in a year. As the author states, they do a decent job of mopping on laminated flooring, though iRobot state in their manual to never use the Scooba on this type of flooring due to the likelihood of resulting water damage. The first Scooba failed in just less than two months, and the second after a good seven-month run. Both failed with the Service light. After spending time on the phone with tech support and following their diagnostic flowchart, was advised to send in for repair. Fortunately we got it on sale for $250 from Hammacher Schlumer who provide a lifetime replacement warranty free of charge. From my experiences I am sure it will come in handy.
If Obama doesn't veto this....
This is another glaring bit of evidence that political money is poison to democracy. How anyone can be against 'net neutrality is beyond me. This very same crap came up with the telephone, and the gov't had to force interoperability and access. Can't the Repubs imagine what a lack of this type of legislation would have meant for the telephone? Not change 'telephone' for 'Internet.' Morons....
Where's the eSATA?
No eSATA interface. Sure and USB 3.0 is nice and all, but there are a hell of a lot more eSATA ports out there and having one on this device would make it far more versatile/useful. Especially in light of the bridge board issue.
