1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    What's a good security program, and how do you know if it's working? I know how I'd find out it wasn't working.......

    What kind of Security Application are you looking for - if it is against viruses then one is not needed - if it is something else you have in mind then some detail will help us help you :)

    If you mean purchasing it through the Android Market some people have found it safer to buy a twenty dollar rechargeable Credit Card from Wal-Mart and using that - it keeps your Credit Card number off of the Net and still gives you the liberty to shop the Android Market as needed :wink:

    Download it from the Market. As of right now, the Android Market uses Google Checkout to purchase, or pay for apps. Google's checkout service is very secure and the person/company you are paying does not get your credit info.

    Thanks for the great info on the Marketplace and Google Checkout. I was a wee bit apprehensive using it, but I think I'll be fine. I've only purchased from a 3rd party company and send the program links as a text message. I LOVE the throw away VISA number idea. I hadn't thought to use one.

    Thanks, folks. I forgot I had Google checkout; bought my app in 10 seconds, and felt secure.

    BTW, it's a REALLY great app. for $.99!!! I'm always making a grocery list, and leaving it on the table. I always have my phone.

    Gawd, I love my Droid!!
