NY Times - House on Autopilot - NOT?

I was glad to see that Home Automation made it into today's New York Times. As bad as it was to see the lead image be of 30 year old technology X10 product, anything that brings HA to the masses is good! The killer application of the article?

Lutron, SmartLabs, and Universal Electronics all had mentions in addition to X10. I was surprised there was no mention of Z-wave, Zigbee, Control4, UPB or any of the other technologies. Oh well - it leaves room for a follow up article.
