Now hopefully Google will stop acting like they invented and own the word.

big cow. Disgusting.

 I hope they have to relinquish all claim to being able to restrict the use
of the word Android in a computing related context.

As for damages, well, I hope they only have to cover his legal costs if they
try and fight it.

 mm.....A quick solution would be to simply buy-out their company with
their trademark.....that is if they are willing to sell it but I guess
not.

Anyway, how come we don't see more publicity around this issue then?
kinda shows the Android name is still far behind Ipod's or Windows
mobile's.

LOL...

did
that was to get the name

 > I hope they have to relinquish all claim to being able to restrict the use

Why? That makes no sense. If I buy an "Android Phone" but it isn't
actually Android, or worse is Android but with major API changes that
make it no longer Android from an app perspective, I am screwed.

Something along this line is probably the hoped-for outcome. Business
must be slow up North.

Remember Monster Cable get constantly whacked in public for suing
anybody under the sun who use "Monster" in their company name, making
cables or not.

 I hope Google at least comes out with a statement on this and calm down
things, either way that they can fight this and drown the other guy in legal
limbo and reach out of court settlement !!

 If I were him, I wouldn't be trying to draw this kind of attention
with a name like "Android Data". Does anybody else think that there is
good reason for Paramount to start something against him?

 If he truely is the legal owner of android then he has a right to litigate.

 this is just stupid, what is stopping this guy from sueing every
company with the word Data or Corporation in their name?  Android is
in Websters dictionary, it was a term coined in the 1700s you can't
OWN that.  I really think the patent and trademark laws both need a
major overhaul in the states, it makes me sick to my stomach what
people can own the rights too these days.  Grinding innovation and
creativity to a halt.

1. My dialog inherited class pops up "gray", want it to be like maps->menu->map mode (white foreground)

Hi,

I'm trying to figure out how to make my dialog look like the dialog
you see when you run the maps app and choose menu->map mode.
White foreground and the background is gray (not dimmed slightly).
I think the AlertDialog using the builder looks like this by default,
but
I want to extend the Dialog class instead. I tried

window.setFlags(WindowManager.LayoutParams.FLAG_DIM_BEHIND,
WindowManager.LayoutParams.FLAG_DIM_BEHIND);

Does anybody know?

Thanks,

George
