iRobot's Roomba robot vacuum adds Clean Map reports and promises Alexa integration

I've been eying the iRobot Roombas for over a year now. The idea of a robot vacuum gliding around my apartment and cleaning up while I'm not around sounds all too appealing and nerdy.

Improved version of expanded replies in the YouTube app is being tested, no longer minimizes videos

Google is well known for testing all sorts of small server-side changes in its apps, and YouTube is one of the best examples for this. Whether it be the general UI, videos, descriptions, or comments, there always seems to be something that Google is experimenting with in the YouTube app. The popular video-sharing app's latest server-side update makes expanded replies in the comments section of videos a lot nicer.
