Portmanteau of robotics and computers? I'd have thought 'company' would be more typical. 90.194.162.200 23:31, October 31, 2010 (UTC)

Aside from the fact that the sentence is completely frivolous, it probably is Computer due to "Industries" appearing in the name. "Robot Company Industries" doesn't make a lot of sense. JonCollins 02:17, November 8, 2010 (UTC)

It must be Computer, Robot Company Industries sounds stupid. Mcelf 22:23, November 15, 2010 (UTC)

Page name Edit

Why is this "RobCo" and not "RobCo Industries"? That is what the company name is. JonCollins 02:17, November 8, 2010 (UTC)

Nevermind, this was fixed some time ago. I think I was confused by an inbound link.

RobCo is an abbreviation of... Edit

Guys, I'm pretty sure that it's Robots and Computers, or something like that, Robot and Computer etc, but Robot Company or Corporation doesn't make sense. Then it would be RobCo Industries Company/Corporation. It can't be both, and since in-game the company is called RobCo Industries, and this page is quite rightly called RobCo Industries, it is therefore Robots and Comptuers, or possibly Robert Company after its founder, but that sounds pretty silly too.

No. It was common in the '50s to use Co as part of a company name, and it specifically refers to "company" not "computers." --Kris User Hola 22:24, November 15, 2010 (UTC)

Hi! Case in point, "NABISCO" is an acronym for, "National Biscuit Company". Leo Star Dragon 1. 70.129.174.55 03:22, March 4, 2011 (UTC)
