iRobot Wants to Sell Mapping Data Collected by Roomba Vacuums to a Tech Company Like Apple

I don’t have a Roomba but if I did I wouldn’t be letting it share a map of my house layout to anyone. I really do like some of my technology to stay stupid.

I got to be honest, I don’t think my Roomba keeps a map of my house or has mapped it very well. I once told it to dock right after it started and it took nearly 30 minutes to find the dock.

I hated our Roomba. It was infuriating watching it randomly zig zag trying to clean a room. It would miss areas and over clean others. So glad we returned it (Costco) and got a Neato. Such a more effecient device. Would never buy a Roomba again. It wasn’t even one of the cheaper models, can’t remember the model name/number but for sure at a min. the middle tier.

Ugh…
