I view this very positively and strongly believe that iRobot should focus solely on its consumer segment. The uncertainty and fear surrounding these concerns could linger in the short term, especially if the broader tech sector suffers.

The robot vacuum share of the vacuum cleaner pie is growing, and iRobot already owns a large portion of the robot cleaner section. As the market grows, more sophisticated competitors will naturally emerge.
I will say that iRobot, the maker of Roombas, is really good about supporting its old products.
My ultimate message to investors here is that, in my opinion, competitive concerns, while warranted, are not likely to endanger the long-term health and potential of IRBT. I am not receiving compensation for it other than from Seeking Alpha.
