    Looks like daughter to the late author Philip K. Dick ( Philip K. Dick - Science Fiction Author - Official Site), writer of the book Android's Dream of Electric Sheep Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia more widely known in its movie form as Bladerunner is having a hard time dealing with the name Nexus One.

    Google to be sued over Nexus One? - Network World

    Not sure how far this one could get.

    the question raised is... "when you hear the name Nexus do you think of the book 'Do Androids dream of robot sheep', or is the potential lawsuit what brought it to your attention?"
    probably be out of court....small settlement. I think the author has very little shot.

    Sounds like someone has an expensive drug habit so she needs cash. How do I know she is on drugs you ask? She has to be to think that she could win in court, haha... Settlement will probably be out of court to the tune of acouple mill... I need to write a book that covers anything that sounds cool and could potentially be a car name, cellphone, or any other electrical device, haha.
