A Woot Classic Moment
We’re having so much fun
being lazy reading these old write-ups that we’ve decided to share them with you through the end of our 10th birthday month! Check out this refurb- uh, classic.
Cry Robot, And Loose The Dogs Of Dirt (January 2007)
While your fancy Roomba is gliding along the comfy, air-conditioned carpets of your home, who’s doing the dirty work in the garage or the basement? Who’s dusting the bunnies and sweeping up the shavings and picking up the nuts and bolts? The cheaper, tougher, doggier iRobot Dirt Dog, that’s who.
Don’t call it a vacuum unless you enjoy the feeling of angry fangs in your soft, fleshy nether parts. The Dirt Dog is a sweeper, plain and simple, and a heavy-duty one at that. It don’t need no stinkin’ vacuum – just a set of high-speed brushes and a filthy workshop floor. Charge it up, set it off, and stay out of its way, unless you want to find out if you fit in its oversized dustbin.
You want something that can gently inhale the debris from your shag carpet? Call a Roomba. You want something that’ll bring you your paper and slippers and let you pet it behind the ears? Call a mail-order bride service. The Dirt Dog sweeps, sweeps, and sweeps again, and if you don’t like it, well, you know what they say: Mess with the dog, you get the dirt.
