For the parent who’s always suspected their kid’s bedroom is the dirtiest part of the house — Roomba is now ready to weigh in.
iRobot (IRBT), maker of the popular robot vacuum cleaner, has updated its app to provide detailed cleaning maps, plus integration with Amazon’s (AMZN, Tech30) Alexa.
Owners of top-of-the-line Roombas will begin receiving maps showing exactly where in the home was cleaned and what was messiest. Areas with lots of dirt and debris will be marked with plus signs on the map. The Roombas will spend extra time on those trouble spots. iRobot is also adding push notifications for owners who want to be texted when their Roomba is done cleaning.
The updated app is available on iOS and Android Wednesday. The Amazon Alexa integration will launch this spring.
The plus signs on the map of the home indicate where dirt was found.
Roomba owners will be able to tell the vacuum to start, stop or pause a cleaning. For example, “Alexa, ask Roomba to begin cleaning.”

- [By Mitchell Clark]
The Toro Company (NYSE:TTC) is one of my favorite small-caps for medium- to long-term investors. Selling specialized equipment for turf management and other industries, Toro is a proven winner that has provided very consistent growth in sales and earnings over the years.
It’s not the fastest growing small-cap business, but it pays a decent dividend and has a loyal customer base in the golf course and contractor markets.
Toro is now offering sprinkler refit equipment for water-starved jurisdictions like California. This company’s share price performance has been exemplary.
