…It’s Things Thursday: iRobot Verro?

iRobot Verro

If you own a swimming pool, then you’ve probably already come to the sad realization that while the swimming part is fun, the cleaning part is not. Thankfully, iRobot is bringing their robotic magic to the pool with the release of their new Verro product line. Designed to do for your pool what the Roomba did for your living room (allow you to be really lazy while robots do your chores), the Verro is available in two flavors. The 300 is smaller and is designed for smoother surfaces and smaller pools, while the 600 is larger and is designed for tile surfaces and larger pools. Both are designed to save you time and energy, and they can filter debris down to 2 microns for that really clean feeling. Plus, everything is built in, so there are no hoses to worry about. Just drop it in and let it do its thing. Sadly, these pool boys won’t be appearing on the cover of any romance novels any time soon, but the days of robotic servants are officially upon us.

…300 is going to be a stunner?


300 looks like it could be one of the most amazing movies ever made. Strong statement, I know, but wait until you see the trailer, then decide if you agree with me or not. Based on the Battle of Thermopylae (no, it’s not based on the perfect bowling score, but that’s what I thought at first too), it looks to be a visual stunner, and it’s based on an epic graphic novel by Frank Miller, so you know it’s going to be at least as good as Sin City was (which is saying a lot). So check out the high def preview, pick your jaw up off the floor, then come back and post a comment about how right I was. You won’t be disappointed.
