All the news from the annual Google I/O event, including the latest on Android.
Even with all of its extra features, skip the Yujin Robot iClebo Arte if stellar performance is your top goal.
The XV-21 is a great all-around robot vacuum and a viable Roomba alternative, but among Neatos, we'll stick with the brainier, similarly priced XV Signature Pro.
The Roomba 880 is the most well-rounded, capable bot we've encountered so far, but the $449 Neato Robotics XV Signature Pro still wins the pet hair performance test on all flooring surfaces.
The BotVac's design diverges a bit from Neato's classic XV line.
Jibo, billed as "the world's first family robot," has already blown past its $100,000 Indiegogo fundraising goal and really wants to come live with you.
If you want a no-fuss floor cleaner, stay away from the Moneual Rydis H67 Pro.
These normally sell for upward of $100 apiece, so this is almost like getting two for one. These dart-firing RC spiders are insanely cool and tons of fun.
If you have hardwood floors (and no pets), you'll likely be more than happy with just how well the Hovo performs. Just don't expect Roomba-level design or smarts.
On this week's show, Jessica Dolcourt joins us for some hands-on time with the Galaxy Nexus--and that peek is all you get, since there's still no U.S. release date for that sucker. Ridiculous. Also, Google Music recapped and a tag-team SOPA rant, plus Stephen Beacham's awesome new segment: Into It or Not Into It. You will love it, and you will dance. All that and Computer Love, to boot! Settle in!
On today's show, how Google biffed the Gmail app big-time, RIM is the saddest little wounded puppy you ever did see (and hear), and CNET News' Jay Greene joins us to talk about his two-part series on Microsoft killing the Courier tablet and what it means for the company's future. Plus, when the heck is the Galaxy Nexus coming? Seriously, now?
