    Seems that most owners of the Droid is guys, and this name, droid, and their ad, a robot, all are geared towards guys, and geeky guys. Is it bad to own a droid in terms of your social reputation?

    No, with respect towards geeks and nerds and what they can do with these things, I am not a nerd. The chicks like my Droid.

    Not at all... I am a contractor and when I am at someones house selling a job/installation and they ask me a question that requires a visual or more info than I have on a product I get on the web right in front of them and it usually clinches the sale of the job.
    The Droid is a tool more than anything for me... I have all my pricing spreadsheets loaded in and if someone needs an estimate I can give it to them on the spot without shuffling through hard copy price lists spread all over their dining room table.
    I can assemble an estimate/quote, E-mail it to them and they can print it out and we can execute a contract on the spot and I walk out with a deposit check.

    If that is too geeky so be it... makes my job easier and the cash flow faster.

    Being cool is not caring what others think. People are attracted to those who can stand on their own. Droid or no Droid, the way you carry yourself determines how cool/uncool you are.

    The Droid is MANLY. Most of the other phones are chick phones - the IPhone, etc.

    If you have a Droid just add a few inches onto your length.

    If you're a woman it just makes you cooler to guys.

    Getting a droid wasn't exactly the thing that put me over the edge. I have always been a little geeky.

    I am a cabinetmaker by day. I suppose the paint smudges on my droid help to offset it's geek factor....not that I give a crap.
