I wonder if Hasbro plans on sueing ASUS since they probably have the name "transformer Prime" copyrighted. Maybe someone should give Hasbro Apple's phone number. They can get a few tips from them on how to sue someone for using a name or even perhaps a geometric shape such as a rectangle .

(Sorry had to do a little tongue in cheek with all this doom and gloom about delays)

i don't think they have either of those words under trademark, or they aren't enforcing it publicly, as asus had no problem with the original transformer.

if they marketed it with refrences to the IP, then they could have issue, but they are using the words in a more generic sence officially, and those of us who are familiar with the pop culture refrence that is implied, are making that association on our own.
