Wow... I'm not sure what you're wanting me (us) to say. As far as I know, none of us are getting paid by LEGO or any other company to post on this blog... (although I'm a little suspicious of Matthias - he's been wearing a new fur coat that looks expensive)
I don't know much about the RobotC programming language other than it's one of many available languages being developed... I looked at bnxt.com and I see an interview with Q&A's, but I'm not sure it qualifies (to me) as an advertisement. It does mention the price, but so many of the sensors and add-ons that have been covered here (and on other blogs) have also mentioned pricing.
And LEGO's not exactly giving away the NXT! :) I was told a long time ago that a business is in business to make money... makes sense to me.
Will you ever see advertisements on The NXT STEP? I can't promise that, but I don't think so... I don't think advertisements are allowed on blogging sites, anyway.
I've got a book on NXT coming out soon... will I mention it on this blog? AB-SO-LUTELY! Will I put an ugly advertisement on the screen or a pop-up? Never.
Not to be overly critical, but I think you're being a little too sensitive to this issue... but I don't know the entire story about RobotC... maybe you know something I don't...
All I can say is, if you don't like RobotC, don't buy it. But don't try and shoot down innovation or we'll end up with a basic NXT kit and not much else...
Go get some ice cream, Ben... always calms me down.
The page page in Japanese that Maniac posted can be found in English via Google Translation.
Check it out!
I agree with ben on the advertising issue... I personally hate paid plugs. I dont mind an ad on the side of the page or whatever but paid plugs that make it sound like the person endorses the product really tick me off.
