    I noticed after my 2.1 upgrade that a new app appeared on my touchscreen that I did not download. When I click on it, it gives a "close" or "accept" option.

    I am not worried about as it is a legitimate app. It's called google goggles. But I would like to learn how to delete it without installing. It does not appear under Settings...Applications...Manage Applications which also leads me to believe it is not installed but somehow downloaded.

    I am not worried about this app, but would like to know how if anything "strange" appears.

    Did it show up on your Home screen? If so, I imagine, during the upgrade, if there was room left, they might have snuck it on there to let you know that you had it. You can get rid of the icon on your home screen, like any other. It will then only be in your lauch tray.

    It's a pretty cool app. Go ahead and accept it and go through the set up. You can actually take a picture and Google will try to locate what you shot and bring up the info. Technology, gotta love it.
