Anyone downloading apps from ANY app store really needs something like Lookout Mobile Security on their device(s). Another reason I really really want Froyo on the eDGe, so that Lookout will run. Even if I tried to install an app that was loaded with malware, Lookout would find it and notify me. It's getting to be as dangerous to use Android without malware protection as it is to use Windows unprotected.

Yeah, we probably don't have a lot of the "sexy" apps installed, but the article mentions that some of the apps are pirated versions of seemingly innocuous apps that users might install like "chess." And hey, sexy legs might be your thing. Who am I to judge?

Thanks for updating the list, sjarrel.

WAIT!! I want the "Screaming Sexy Japanese Girls"... LOL how funny!

On a serious note, I never thought I would need something like Lookout Mobile Security on a linux device. Guess if you put garbage in, you get garbage out. Makes sense that way.
