This is probably old news too (it's like I've been away from the Internet for weeks and am just now getting around to posting about things—you mean 3D is making a comeback! Wow!) but did you know that every time anyone buys one of those Droid phones from Verizon Wireless a little bit of the money goes to George Lucas?

I'm not sure how much money, but Lucasfilm owns the rights to the name Droid and you better believe that he's going to get paid for every single thing he can. He's already given up any semblance of artistic integrity he once had by licensing Star Wars out to any piece of shit Sci-Fi author and handing the keys to the Indiana Jones franchise to Shia LaBeouf, so why not shake down Verizon for a few bucks, too?
