I don't dispute the recognition of a random chance of nasty boulder on the landing spot. I do dispute the vague quantification of such risk.

I wouldn't have a problem with "The chosen spot has an estimated 2% chance of unavoidable crashing conditions.". However, "a good slice of luck" doesn't belong at news about arguably the recent highest engineering achievements of humanity.

Google and their hardware partners are doing a lot to bring the benefit of technology to more people than have had it before.

Well... Yes. All technology corporations try their best to bring technology to more people than before.

The opposite would be, thievery. Or, if instead of "less technology" you go for the "less people" route, murder.
