    Lol, the google guys are geeks through and through.

    If anything I think it is a nod to that geekiness. They probably did borrow the general design as an old tip of the hat if you will.

    Things like that happen in the tech world all the time. Just look at the code names some companies use for their products or look at ASIC designers who name their chips after Greek gods and such.

    Trademarked? Yes. Originated? NO WAY! Lucas did not originate the word droid, he merely was wise enough to trademark it. Similar to Pat Riley trademarking the term Three-peat.

    lucasfilm owns the copyright to the word android....

    *EDIT*
    I actually typed that out wrong, lucasfilm owns the trademark 'droid' and the actualy copyright is owned by Eric Specht of Android Data.

    Lucas owns the word Droid, not Android...android was a regular word at the time...George shortened it to his liking and then threw a Copyright on it

    This is as far fetched as claiming that Alienware "stole" their logo design from someone/somewhere else... Besides, my android looks more like Seven-Of-Nine
