Alas poor Scooba we barely knew you.
The Kraken is sad.
A trip today to the iRobot website, fails to show the Scooba. iRobot has dumped the Scooba Floor Scrubbing Robot in favor of the Braava Floor Mopping Robot.
It was inevitable I suppose. “This town ain’t big enough for both of us.” When iRobot paid $74 million for the company that made the Mint back in 2012, the fate of the Scooba was sealed.
I was never that impressed with the Mint. To me it seemed like nothing more than a robotic Swiffer. Yet with a price well under half that of the Scooba, the much simpler Mint … now rebranded as the Braava … was destined to fly of merchants shelves.
In related news CatBeard Manor has also recently employed the services of a Roomba 980. Let me just say that this baby … I have named it WALL-E … is pulling out more dirt and cat hair than my Dyson ever did.

We call ours Twinkle Toes and sort of treat her like an odd pet.
WALL-E continues to extract more and more cat hair, dander, and god knows what with every run. Other than having to continuously empty the bin, this baby is a cleaning beast.
I am now seeing stains in the rug that were previously obscured by the hair and dirt. Scary actually.
