Amazon is buying iRobot (Roomba)

quote:

Amazon just announced a blockbuster deal to buy the home robotics company iRobot for $1.7 billion. The pending acquisition would be Amazon's fourth-largest ever, after the purchase of grocery chain Whole Foods in 2017 ($13.7 billion), the movie studio MGM in 2021 ($8.45 billion), and the medical provider One Medical last month ($3.9 billion).

iRobot is the world's leading consumer robotics company. The company mostly makes Roomba vacuum cleaners and robo-mops, and it's also trying to get a robo-mower product off the ground

Amazon probably just wants a digital mapping of all of our homes.

Was just about to post this.

You think their ads are creepy now? Just you wait.

I’m not that worried about Amazon being creepy with ads. I’d be more worried about things more like the warrantless videos Ring has given police.

I’ll admit that I really should be far more disturbed by this than I am.

Darn thing is just that awesome. But yep, you’re 100% right.

I must have a retarded Roomba because it gets stuck under my couch within 10 minutes every time so I guess Amazon will think I live in one of those tiny homes

I was about to say that. I always worried that my floor plan was available to be looked at by whoever had access to my account. And now I know it will be.
