Arrgghh! Cell Phone Plunder

How's your cell phone security? Don't know? Might be a good idea to find out especially if you have a "smart" phone. It's sad, but the thieves are rampant amongst the forest of cell towers. Techno criminals besmirch the good names of pirates throughout history, i.e.: Blackbeard (Edward Teach), Cap'n Morgan, Sir James Couch, Anne Bonny, William Kidd, Jean Bart, Jimmy Buffett, Captain Hook, Dread Pirate Roberts, Sinbad, Pierre & Jean Lafitte, Dockvudu, Sir Francis Drake (yes, he was a buccaneer), Blacksails Lee Taylor, Pirate King Jack Sparrow, Inigo Montoya, Dragor Rogue, Mary Read, Black Bart and many more. All these folks seem like citizens compared to the creeps that use technology to violate privacy. Excuse the tangent, but I do like famous pirates and know a few.

One site recommended to insure mobile security is Webroot. This is the company that makes SpySweeper protection software. They've been around for a while and have good products. Only negative is they will part you from some of your pieces of eight (money). Their prices are usually very reasonable. Try the software section of Newegg for awesome buys or make your purchase on their site. There is a free Android App which can be found at the bottom of the Webroot page linked above.

Thanks EdC for a great link. In closing let me recommend the Rum Boogie, matey!
