    yeah, these people are on crack

    no one would confuse his book with the phone

    they think that their smoking gun is the fact that GOOGLE created and named their OS "android" which automatically makes people think of robot creatures from blade runner

    not realizing that android started independently of google and was later purchased

    I doubt it will get far, much like Toyota Vs. Lexis Nexis, a panel will decide that there will be no product confusion

    Interesting, but it probably won't go through.

    Though google maintains that it doesn't reference the book- they do have a habit of naming things after geeky stuff.. and seeing as how blade runner is on one of the top scifi movie lists of all time, it could have standing.

    For example, Google Wave was named after people receiving 'waves' in the tv series 'Firefly' and the follow-up movie 'Serenity'. Some of the error messages included in wave include quotes from the show- which was unfortunately cancelled before it really got going. (space westerns are usually great .. it had good promise..)
