    What anti-virus app do you use?

    None, and never planning on getting one. If a virus hits an Android device then it's the user to blame. Probably downloaded a non Market app, visited a suspicious website, exchanged bad files with people over Bluetooth, etc. It's always the user.

    So is HIV, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't use a condom...

    And is it REALLY necessary to tell everyone that you are using a nexus one and tapatalk in every message you post? Everyone is impressed with your excellent taste by now- there's no need to keep rubbing our noses in it.

    There is no need of anti virus. If there is a need of any security, Lookout is good. There are others too I can't remember the name.
    As far as I know, Linux platform is 99% virus free.

    Oh yeah... I love my Tapatalk sig too because that showed that I am not on the computer and maybe other forummers would understand if some of the elements of the forum that I could not see or missed due to the limitation. And its cool too :D

    Come on man... its just a few harmless words..

    +1 for Lookout.

    Not sent using Tapatalk or on my Nexus one at all. I would tell everyone where I sent the message from but why would anyone care.

    Do you wear a seatbelt when driving your car? Or just watch to make sure you don't crash ? :rofl3::rofl3:

    Lookout is by far the best protection application for android. So many features.

    --> ...a Gingerbread ROM
