My sister Sara just bought a new vacuum and we had a pre-buying discussion about it. You can probably predict that I recommended the Dyson to her. I’ve never actually used one, but the commercials have me convinced they are the best, and of course, they look cool.

Instead of the Dyson, Sara opted to try the robot vacuum, and frankly, I’m really curious to get a report. If you don’t know what I mean by robot vacuum, apparently, you turn it on and walk away and it moves all around the room on its own. (If you’re looking for more insight into robots, see this amazing post.) This sounds too good to be true, so I’m glad someone else is trying it out and I don’t have to.

Sara, please report ASAP.
