A Newsweek article about a new robot mopper has the CEO saying:
"We are not just going to replace mopping, we are going to obsolete it," Angle says.
"Obsolete it." That's OK, you know, obsolete as transitive verb. Perfectly correct usage. Just in case anyone thinks it's weird. It's not. It didn't sound strange to me, either. Just thought people should know. If folks want to passé the usage, they'll need to talk to Merriam. Or Webster.
Me, I never thought anything of it.
