Condos are a form of ownership where there are common areas under joint ownership. A townhouse or townhome is a type of structure, generally attached side by side in groups of three or more units. A townhouse may be a condo, but may not be. My current home (10 years) is an individually owned townhouse. We have an HOA created by the original developer 30 years ago.

I would think the cleaning up after the dog into a disposable bag problem would be one of the challenges. The early versions would not need street crossing capability. I got this idea, in part after reading an article about dogs treating sociable robots similar to humans.

After Apple abandoned me and tens of thousands of other Apple ][ and ][+ owners almost thirty years ago, I have no love for those crooks. But I could get an Ipod Touch with twice as much memory at half the price and several times the battery life. At the $250 price level, the larger screen would have been worth it; at $500, no way.
