Jody Victor wondered about the newest Roomba iRobots for rug cleaning.
Here is what Jody found out:
Roomba iRobot was first introduced in 2002. It is a small motorized robot that cleans floors and carpets changing direction when it hits an obstacle due to strategically placed sensors. It can also detect stairs to keep itself from falling down them. It also can detect dirtier areas.
Earlier models had to be “told” the room dimensions but later models can detect room size. Later models can also be put on a schedule. The newer models also have a HEPA filter. Prices range from $349.99 to $699.99 on the Roomba website.
Well, Jody, maybe you should consider a Roomba iRobot!
Do you want a tablet or a laptop? Why not get both … all in one device. An Ultrabook convertible is both: a laptop when you need it or a tablet when you want it to be.
Intel provides the guidelines for an Ultrabook convertible for manufacturers to build.
Intel anti-theft technology
Intel identity protection technology
No, Jody, it isn’t – Raspberry Pi is a credit card-sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. It can do many of the things your desktop computer can do … for as little as $25!
Currently there are 2 models: A and B. Model A has 256 MB memory, one USB port. Model B has 512 MB memory, 2 USB ports and an ethernet port with necessary networking chip.
It is just a circuit board – cases, power supplies etc are extra.
Raspberry Pi is a charity-based organization registered in the UK. The idea behind it was to put more computers in the hands of children for their education. This small computer has captured the interest of developing countries in areas where they can’t afford the power, hardware, and connections necessary to run desktop computers. Some people have even expressed interest in incorporating it into a robot.
You can make a board and categorize the objects. You can have followers: people who like your pins may decide to follow you to track your pins. You can put an icon on the top of your browser and while surfing the web, you can click it on a page with a picture you like and you have a pin. You must be logged into Pinterest at the time to use it. If there’s a pin on someone else’s board that you like and want to put on yours, you can “repin” it. You can also “like” a pin.
Even counselors are using Pinterest according to this article in Wired, Jody Victor has found. Also there have been people that used it to plan a big event, like a wedding. You can pin the items that catch your eye so you don’t forget them.
Do you use Pinterest? Or do you think this is just something else that will eventually fade away? Jody thinks you should try it and find out…
