Very odd article. It sounded as if a robot wrote it, without emotion. Too bad the author didn't take more than 5 minutes to research the technology history, note improvements, sales growth, profile of typical users, cost comparison with a gas mowers, etc..
While the author did mention Friendly Robotics (at the end of the 3rd paragraph), there was only a single comment from STC defending how slow it was. There isn't a single RoboMower logo on the graphics, any mention of competing technologies, or that the mower can be had for much less than the $1,500 as stated in the last paragraph (RL850).
He finished the article with a ton of negative comments. At least the graphics were well done.
