Dopy Droid Doings

Google is the inventor of the Droid (Android) phone, and I hear it's pretty good. But Google just can't keep away from controversy. It spies more than James Bond. I'm not sure if this is Google's fault, but apparently the HTC Incredible phone, based on Droid, saves what you do on the Web. We're talking screen grabs of things like your banking login screen -- with user name and password of course.

The problem is this data is harder to erase than a bad tattoo.
