That was great!

I think it's iconic of our time the way EVERYONE had a phone with a camera on it and was taking pictures.

And no one lifted a finger to help.

So if you were *real* evil-doers, intent on causing mayhem on a public transportation system, dressing as stormtroopers would ensure that you could infiltrate easily without anyone ever questioning your identity. And yes, everyone would be taking pictures, but no-one could ever identify you.

Who's going to ask Darth Vader to document his identity?

The cellphone observation: isn't it flatout weird, that something so recently made as episodes one, two and three, have NOTHING like cellphones on common people? It's as if Earth is the only technology for cellphones in the universe. Even SG1 has communication and photo technology that beats anything the Federation ever uses….

@Allen: George Lucas for one….

When is the last time you saw anyone use a communication while they were on the same planet and needed to talk? CommLink in Episode I on the Death Star worked pretty darn well if you asked me. Can you imagine trying to get your iPhone 4 to work on that labyrith of metal?? Other than that who wouldn't want some walking hologram projector or some of the other communication devices they used?

The common folk in the street on Tatooine don't have any "talking to yerself" conversations going on. Did you ever see anyone taking pics or videos either? Especially at the races in the later movie? Everyone was just jumping up and down like they were watching Ben Hur or something. I think Lucas had an enormous brain fart. Cellphones were coming on strong and he didn't even see them or their decendants in the future. Oh, crap, of course; that is a long time ago in a galaxy far away. Cellphones hadn't been invented yet….

We all know how well that works…

NYC Cop: "Halt! Let me see some identification!"
Vader (handwaive): "You do not need to see my identification.
NYC Cop: "We don't need to see their identification…"
Vader: "We are not the Al Qaeda terrorists you are looking for.."
NYC Cop: "These guys aren't the terrorsits we're looking for."
Vader: "Move along…"
NYC Cop: OK, move along, move along."

Actually, Damon, I think it might go more like this:

NYC Cop: "Halt! Let me see some identification!"
Vader (handwave): "You do not…"
Cop: He's going for a gun!

I was struck by the way people began interacting with their neighbor. Usually people are mistrustful of each other or are wrapped up in their own little world. It doesn't really take much to break down the barriers.
