    Droid is a name of a phone. (Incredible, Eris, X, 2, whatever)

    Android is an operating system that is used on many, many phones and other devices. This includes but is definitely not limited to Droid devices.

    Droid =/= Android.

    And it grinds my gears when people - even Android users and developers who should know better! - still call everything a freaking Droid.

    Why can't I empty my trash all at once? Why can't I have a setting that all deleted emails actually get deleted instead of going to Trash? Why isn't there an App to do this? Why do fools fall in love??? Who put to Bop in the Bop Shoo Bop Doo Bop?

    When I get a custard filled doughnut and all the custard is in a blob in one side, causing most of it to leak out on my shirt when I take a bite. Surely if we can land a man on the moon and safely return him to earth, then we can evenly distribute custard throughout a damn doughnut! :mad:

    Ok, So I manage a Restaurant, and you know what really GRINDS MY GEARS??? When somebody drives up to the carry out window to ask for an employment application, or even worse, to turn in an application ! ! ! If you are that pathetic and lazy to not even bother to walk inside and ask for a manager, then I have no desire to hire you and waste my payroll dollars on you!

    There. . I do fell better. . thanks for the rant!

    <agreed>

    I worked for Verizon Wireless when the Original Motorola Droid was released, and that whole name confusion was a pain in the rectum ! ! It all started with the Moto Droid and the HTC Eris. Plus VZW made such a big deal about the device launch even though Android phones had been out a long time before Verizon started carrying them. People just got bombed with the "DROID DOES" Commercials that now all they think about is DROID!
