One very slight niggle: The “Working Girl” robots from Heinlein’s _The Door Into Summer_ are very similar in function & capability to iRobot’s Roombas. On the other hand, the story isn’t about the robots, so your point still holds. On the gripping hand, how do you tell a story about robots like that, that lack the sentience to be actual characters?
