comment What is an alternative to a vacuum cleaner for cleaning carpets?
@progtick That it does. That was the main thing I used it for, picking up crumbs during the day. We also had a regular vacum that was used after closing.

Probably not deep cleaning, and they work best on carpet without a deep pile, like you usually find in commercial settings.

I used one of these in the fast food place I worked in years ago. They work well and they are silent, so they can be used around customers.

comment If DC adapters are so prevalent, why is AC used in construction by default?
They are starting to build large computer data centers with a large AC-DC converters, then DC distribution to the individual machines. I wouldn't be surprised to see this technology start to make its way into homes at some point.

comment Has anyone ever used IdeaPaint?
My wife used something similar to this (it was put on with a brush, not in a spray can) under regular paint, and it worked fine.
