Vacuums have come a long way since the first manually-powered one was invented back in 1868. Judging by the range of innovations for the floor-cleaners in recent years, they have a long way to go too.
The thing with devices like the vacuum is that they will always be needed. In addition, because of the diversity of floors and the preferences of the people who own them, there is no one right solution.
