Roomba update tells your robovacs to steer clear of trouble spots

  Roomba update tells your robovacs to steer clear of trouble spots iRobot's Roomba vacuums just got an update that improves their cleaning prowess by telling them what not to do. Roomba i/s and Braava jet M6 models now have Keep Out Zones that outline specific areas they're not allowed to visit. The company suggests this for keeping robots away from your pet's food bowls, but it could also be helpful for problematic rugs or cords. You can set them up in iRobot's Home app. Those same devices are also getting smarter mid-job charging. Rather than wait until they have a full charge before resuming a cleaning task, they now only charge for as long as needed to complete their work.

  Thursday's best Amazon Deals: Dash Air Fryer, iRobot Roomba, LifeStraw, and more This Thursday, take a little time out of your day for some retail therapy and save on these highly-rated gadgets.Online shopping can be both the best of times, and the worst of times. It's always a thrill to find a product that you've been eyeing finally go on sale, but then the fear can creep in that maybe you can find it for a lower price somewhere else on the web, or there's a promo code you're missing out on, or maybe the retailer jacked up the original price just to trick you. It can be too easy to second-guess a purchase before clicking that "order now" button, but here at Reviewed, we want to take all the guess work out of online shopping for you.

There's one more update if you have a Roomba 900 series machine. They now support Imprint Link, letting them pair with the Braava jet M6 to hand off cleaning duties when the vacuuming is finished. While that won't give you all the perks of more recent robovacs, it will help you add mopping to the process without pressure to get newer hardware.

MacOS Catalina is killing off 32-bit apps. Here’s what that means for you .
Check your apps or find new alternatives before updating to MacOS Catalina.If you regularly update your apps or download them only from the App Store, you'll most likely be fine. But if you're holding onto an old favorite that the developer isn't looking to update -- like Microsoft Office 11 for Mac -- you'll need to decide whether to move to Catalina and lose access to the app, or skip the update and keep using the old software.
