Deal of the day: Scooba floor robot for $200
Ever since CNET News.com writer Michael Kanellos did a video demonstration of the Scooba cleaning our break room floor, everyone at News.com has either wanted one, or bought one already. Now, with Buy.com's discounted price, even those of us with more meager means can have one. At last! No more sponge-mop drudgery. The little guy (the robot, not the reporter) even picks up pretzel crumbs and diet Coke spills right up off the floor.
Here's a short list of features from the seller's site: "Preps by picking up loose sand, crumbs and dirt. Washes using clean Clorox cleaning solution. Scrubs your floor, removing dirt and grime. Dries by picking up the dirty solution, leaving the floor clean and dry." Get it for $200 if you use Google Checkout, $210 if you don't have that option.
