With two dogs (black labs) and two cats, my Roomba Discovery model has been a godsend. It very effectively picks up fur on a daily basis and allows me to vacuum my hardwood floors with a traditional vacuum only once a week, as opposed to the every other day regimen I had been on. I have not used it on carpeted floors, but it does vacuum heavier weight rugs quite well as part of it's cleaning pattern. (The smaller, lighter-weight rugs I remove from the floor to prevent the Roomba from getting caught on the edges.) A couple of minor drawbacks--I've found that I really do need to empty the little bin at least after every cleaning session, sometimes even more often, for the most effective cleaning. Also the unit is typically pretty competent in finding it's way back to the charging base if it's in the same general vicinity, but if it is too far away it will search for the unit without success.

Great New Foo

by Foo Fan on 11/28/2007

The Foo Fighters are consistently excellent. This album is a great blend of styles. Not quite as much as their first and earlier albums, but a must-have none-the-less. Read More

ECHOES, SILENCE, PATIENCE & GRACE, the Foo Fighters' sixth effort, upholds the band's allegiance to melody-heavy post-grunge power pop driven by roaring guitars and Dave Grohl's fine songwriting. The Foos are aided by super-producer Gil Norton this time out (Norton also helped craft the group's second, and arguably best, album, THE COLOR AND THE SHAPE). The result is a polished yet powerful outing that proves the Foos have earned their status as one of alternative rock's most reliable acts.
But while tunes like "The Pretender" pack a hard-rock wallop, the real surprises on ECHOES are the softer songs. The breezy, folky "Summer's End," for example, is a standout, as is Grohl's solo acoustic performance on "Stranger Things Have Happened." This isn't to say the Foo Fighters have mellowed--the album contains as much amplified snarl as any of their others--but here the quieter moments rival the rockers, revealing a band whose intimate, earnest moments are as convincing as their head-banging ones.
