    Here we go with the next round of anti-virus, anti-spam, anti-messing with my computer software. Somebody is going to get rich. :icon_evil:

    I was planning not to do any banking or keeping of financial records on my phone. This seals it.

    You know, I trialed a number of weather apps looking for one that was just right. Don't know when they had it up, but sounds like something I could have downloaded.

    I mean, how do you police that? I generally turn GPS off, but it seems like almost every app you d/l needs internet in order to update.

    Conspiricy theory time...

    I really think it's the antivirus software makers who let those nasty
    little viruses go - so they later reap the benefits - when we come a running to them for their software.
