    Connection to Lucasfilms?!?

    DROID is a trademark of Lucasfilm Ltd. and its related companies. Used under license.

    found that at the bottom of the following page

    How to Transfer contacts from your phone to your Android device

    Are these the droids we're looking for?

    I doubt that will get far....
    A gun in the hand is better than a cop on the phone.

    Only the Skilled Survive

    A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history - with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.

    2. See Rule #1

    USMC rule # 23 of gunfighting: Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everyone you meet.

    Somebody needs to make a Venn diagram showing why it made sense to license the name. You know, all die-hard Star Wars fans are nerds. Most smartphone enthusiasts are nerds. There is some real overlap there.

    So licensing is stealing?

    It's not so much IP law -- you can't copyright words like that (though I am not an IP lawyer) -- as it is greed IMO.

    You can trademark them.... but Trademarks are really only enforceable if you continue to make an effort to enforce them... Dunno if PKD's familiy has really been spending time enforcing any trademarks on "Nexus" though.
