There's now a 900 series of Roombas for about twice the price with WIFI and remote and smartphone apps and apparently real mapping of your house using a camera and proper planning of efficient cleaning patterns. Meh. The cheap one works fine.
Burglars with a cyber streak cannot wait for anything better.  :D

Yeah I don't see any real reason for that. I've run one of the old Roombas in a room that had carpet where it left a visible track of where it had run, and by the time it finished you could see that it had crisscrossed everywhere and not missed anything. Where they have trouble is when someone keeps interfering with it trying to get it to go to a specific area, just let it run, it will cover the whole room.
