As usual, you don't comprehend my words, as you are very well aware that
I've searched extensively in the past /exactly/ what the word "AirDrop"
meant to the Android developers and to Apple, and where I've said /many
times/ that it's a meaningless trademarked bought-and-paid-for word that
can and does mean anything the owners want it to mean.

In the past, the meaningless word "AirDrop" stood for an assemblage of
Android marketing services, while Apple legal says specifically that it
stands for their particular assemblage of "ad hoc file transfer services".

We've had this discussion so many times that I know you're just arguing for
arguments sake, since you know full well all of this, since I've told you
very many times that the word "AirDrop" is a meaningless brand name that
Apple bought from Android developers which Apple can use to mean anything
they want it to mean (which is the nature of trademarks).

I've also pointed you to the web pages where Apple specifically states that
any third party (which includes us) legally should /always/ use the
descriptor provided (of ad hoc file transfer services) the first time in
any document that the name "AirDrop" is used, since only Apple, legally, is
allowed to just use the word all by itself.

You know all this ... so you're just playing your silly games, again.
