Oh, dear. Looks like if you're going to rely on Android's swipe gesture passwords for security, you'd better doing constant wipe-downs. Or maybe washing your hands once in a while forgoodnessake. [IntoMobile]

I don't use it for security, it's just harder to unlock than the regular swipe of the iPhone. Plus, if someone did find my phone it's like a 50/50 they would want to contact me to give it back or take out the microSD card and steal all my info that way.
