If Star Wars Had Cell Phones

Sending a secret holographic message with an astromech droid? That's so outdated!

Brian Gordon illustrates how Star Wars would've looked like had they employed today's mobile technology in this cute Chuck and Beans webcomic: Link - via Nerd Approved

I have the same problem with "Silence of the Lambs." WIth cell phones and DNA testing, the entire story would have been different.

I seem to recall a short video about how some classic movies would have turned out if they had cell phones. Pretty funny.

This one wouldn't have worked because there are no cell towers in space around Tattoine.

What McLaughlin said. Cellphones wouldn't work without satellites and relay towers. How would they work across star systems? The fantasy/sci-fi of Star Wars, like most space-traveling sci-fi, expects that one can accept faster-than-light travel, but not faster-than-light radio waves.

And yes, I am fun at parties, so shuddup.
