Most other robot vacuums move around a room at random. They bump into walls, bump into furniture. They go in circles, cleaning some spots several times and others not at all. But Neato XV-21 knows exactly where it’s going at all times.

Its remarkable laser eye uses infrared light to scan the surroundings five times every second. The result is a highly accurate 360° map of the room and any obstacles. Then the robot efficiently cleans in a pattern of straight, overlapping lines.

As it moves around a room, the robot’s sensor enables it to avoid obstacles like furniture, walls, stairs and pets.

Neato XV-21 Pet & Allergy Automatic Vacuum Cleaner reviews

Neato XV-21 can handle large floor plans, because it automatically recharges its batteries. When it’s low on power, the robot simply returns to its base and recharges. Then it returns to clean, right where it left off.

Neato XV-21 review: The Neato XV-21 takes automatic vacuuming to a brand new level. Whether your floors are carpet, wood, tile, or vinyl, the XV-21 is ready to take on the task of keeping your floors neat and clean. The XV-21 features a special bristled brush that enables the pick-up of tough pet hair, dander and fibers, and the Pet and Allergy Filter boosts airflow and suction power and picks up and retains more than three times the amount of fine dust particles of standard filters. It is simply fun to watch the robot do its thing, whether it is setting up for a series of parallel cleaning runs, finding and turning corners, avoiding obstacles, extricating itself from a tangle of chair legs, or returning to home base.

How to find the best discount hotels and flights

I like to travel around the world. Sometime I like to visit expensive places like Monte Carlo (tip: the best time to visit Monaco is in September), London or Dubai. Even so, I’m not so rich so I need to plan in advance my trips and find the best discount hotels and flights.

Always check online for discounts and deals. You could get lucky and land a deal for a trip at half the price. Ticket resellers are always trying to get rid of tickets last minute for destinations that did not sell. Therefore you are always going to want to be on the lookout for and deals you can get your hands on.

Book your reservations far in advance. One of the best ways to save money is to book your reservations right away. A lot of people think that they don’t need to book their tickets right away and that things will work out. Although you might get lucky and find a deal, remember that nothing is set in stone until you book a flight. You can also save a lot of money by booking flights and hotel packages together.

Shop around for the best fares if you are traveling by air. Search on popular travel sites, as well as the airline’s own website (ex: British Airways, Lufthansa, Delta). Know the rules for change fees or cancellations, which will generally be more favorable when booking directly with the carrier itself. If your plans are set in stone, you may even want to consider using bargain travel sites or ones in which you can negotiate the fares. Remember also that airfares are generally less expensive on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays. Book well in advance for the lowest fares, and don’t be afraid to ask for refunds if the fare drops before your departure date.

Crete (an island from Greece) is my favorite place to visit during my summer holiday.

Search for the best hotel rates in the same way that you do for airline tickets. I always use Booking.com to search good deals for hotels and Tripadvisor.com to search for hotel reviews.

Rates will vary, sometimes greatly, depending on where and when you book them. If booking directly with the hotel, always ask if the rate quoted is the “best rate available.” Use discounts that you are entitled to, such as AAA or AA discounts. If you know that you will not need to make changes, consider using websites that require you to pay in full at the time of booking. Be aware, however, that these rates are usually nonrefundable.

Before deciding on a destination, make sure that you know the costs involved for traveling in that area. Choose a place that fits into your budget and will give you plenty of room to splurge on the things that you want to do. Then, make a budget and know ahead of time how much you want to spend. Nothing can ruin a trip more quickly than realizing that you cannot afford the activities and events that you have the opportunity to experience.

Know your destination as well as possible before leaving home. Use the Internet to become familiar with all the things to do there, and which things to avoid. Reserve enough money to enjoy the things that are the most important to you, while putting aside enough to splurge on unexpected activities that will be revealed only after arrival.

Eating out can put a huge drain on your vacation budget, so think ahead about how to avoid some of these costs. If dining in restaurants is a big part of what you enjoy about traveling, then include it in your budget, by all means. Consider, however, booking hotel rooms with refrigerators, so that you can at least save money by eating breakfast or snacks in your room. Pack things like bread and crackers, or purchase them at a local grocery store after arrival. The time spent at the beginning of your trip can more than pay off, with less expensive and more nutritious options for meals in the off times. Bring along a backpack and throw in some snacks for when you are out enjoying activities, so that you can avoid paying for expensive drinks and fast food at venues.

Time spent planning for expenses can make your trip more enjoyable and less stressful on every level.

Travel is one of the most rewarding experiences a person can have, making lifetime memories for your entire family. A trip can easily turn stressful, however, if expenses get out of control. It is wise to plan ahead for not only the known costs, but also for the inevitable unexpected expenses that occur. Read on for some tips for managing the financial aspect of your journey.

Google+ better than Facebook to find lost cameras

Markus Thompson was scuba diving in Deep Bay and found a Canon EOS 1000D camera in the deep. Maybe he read some Sherlock Holmes books in the past because Markus start an investigation to find the camera owner.

The best cup for tea

I like to drink tea during the winter. So, I was looking for a nice cup for tea and for my surprise I found this one. Is not an ordinary tea cup, it is 2011 Red Dot Design winner and also it has a name: TIPPING TEACUP. At $20 is not very expensive but not cheap and already is on my wishing list for Santa.

The teacup has an unusual angled bottom that allows it to rest in two different positions. On one side is a screened compartment in which you place your favorite loose tea leaves. Pour hot water through the screen and allow it to steep. Once it’s done, simply tip the cup in the other direction, lifting the leaves up out of the water. The cup’s large size is perfect for cradling between your hands as you enjoy the warmth of your drink. Screen is removable for simple clean-up.

This natural phenomenon is amazing and we find an explanation for it on Los Angeles Times:

The electric blue glow is caused by an algae bloom commonly referred to as a “red tide.” The organism, a phytoplankton called Lingulodinium polyedrum, has bloomed since late August, turning the water a brownish-red color in the daytime, according to UC San Diego scientists.

I know my Christmas gift

I just read a Kindle Touch versus Kindle 3 review and already I know my Christmas gift… (I hope that my wife still read this website…)

Anyway, if the new Kindle Touch is an evolution, the new Kindle 4 (no touch) is an involution with less feature but a lower price. Also, the Kindle Fire has no chance versus iPad. A 7 inch tablet has no future and this lesson was learn by big vendors like Samsung.
