View Full Version : Isa **** vs Google over Nexus One name?

January 3rd, 2010, 01:37 PM
Isa **** Hackett daughter of late Phillip K. **** claims to be dismayed and shocked that Google didn't ask her permission to use the name Nexus One.


Remember this is simply a blog post at the NY Times, they try to build a correlation of Verizon getting permission to use the word 'Droid' which is a registered trademark by Lucasfilm Ltd.. Here is the important difference 'Nexus' and/or 'Nexus One' were never registered trademarks of Electric Shepherd Productions.

I am a big fan of Phillip K. **** books, and "Do Androids dream of Electric Sheep?" is one of my favorite books of all time but I see No correlation between Google's Nexus One and Nexus 6 referred to in the book. I think the inference by the NY Times Blogger JENNA WORTHAM is a distant stretch.
