K9: Surely the contraction of "self-righting mechanism" should be spelt SRIMEC not SREMEC?

R2-D2: 2nd para - if it's "an X-wing" then surely it should be "an N-1" as well?

Seriously? You do an article on S.F. robots without any research? I, Robot was completely based on the story by Eando Binder (the penname for Earl and Otto Binder) and, rather than this story being influenced by Asimov, he was influenced by this story.

Even if you were born after Star Wars (which pretty well killed fandom based on written works), a little bit of research in a number of venues...like, oh, I don't know, the CREDITS for the episode and following it up would have worked.smiley - erm
