R2-D2 was ingratiating, smart, tough, sociable, cute (but not stuck up about it), stubborn, brave (sometimes scared, but he never ran), creative — he was the one you wanted with you in a pinch, and he was invariably up for any shenanigans.
Yoda was cool, too, but, unlike R2-D2, he didn’t have much of a sense of humor (except when we first meet him: “Looking? Found someone you have, I would say, hmm?”) and he was sort of irascible — but then, he had a lot on his mind and old guys, even Jedi Masters, sometimes get cranky.
And as for Boba Fett — well, if you’re smart, you don’t generally wind up as lunch.
Anyway, R2-D2 saved everybody’s bacon countless times, and the whole rebellion would have faltered but for him.
And now he’ll support you, too, in the guise of a handy USB hub. Plug him in to your PC and you get an additional 4 USB ports to hook up your other devices. He’ll look great on your desk, and he’ll remind you that versatility and resilience are cool. Your kids will like him, and if you keep him at work, it will give you that certain savoir faire. (This is a brand new product, so you can also be the first on your block…)
