    Have you seen the commercials where the fine print says that 'Droid' is a trademark of Lucasfilm? I don't get that. There's nothing Star Warsy about the thing, and I didn't think trademark protection would apply in this kind of situation.

    something is fundamentally wrong with copyright laws when you're allowed to trademark a word.
    I had to do it.

    I actually don't think "Droid" is trademarked.

    It is trademarked. Scroll to the bottom of this page and read the bolded line above the last set of paragraphs:

    None the less it can be used in other product areas. You could name a computer model "Droid" and it would be fine. As the Trademark is only effective against competitors of the same product.

    Guys, does it really matter? We're getting off-topic.

    The new Droid-series phones are really cool, I've gotten to try them out in the last couple days. Hopefully I'll be able to save enough cash to replace my Voyager with one. The new Droid Incredible doesn't have a slide-keyboard though, which I'd miss....the normal Droid rocks.

    Plus, SU access has been hacked over at Hak5, so the thing is now any random linuxer's open platform!
