So how is a poor farmer in sub-saharan africa, with only an SMS-capable "feature-phone" supposed to keep her bitcoins secure?

Does wallet.dat ever change?  If the encryption bitcoin uses ever gets cracked (say some method of quickly reversing the hash), wouldn't the encryption need to change?  In that case, wouldn't you need to recreate your wallet.dat?

I always wondered something like that too.  Where if someone steals you wallet does changing the password on my wallet make it secure or the does the person who stole it have the copy of my wallet with the weaker password. In that case would I just consider those bitcoin addresses and keys compromised an just make a new wallet and transfer the bitcoins out of those compromised address to a new secure bitcoin address that hasn't been compromised before the password is cracked?

Ive actually been using the bitcoin wallet on my android. I have about 3 btc safe and sound on it atm. U think i need to move to something else?

Also wouldnt it just be safer to store the bulk of ur coins on mtgox or something?

This is actually super helpful. I will have to research further, but I'm way on board with the safe idea. Always wanted a safe...

I think the best tip is to write it down on paper

i am new to all this. i am also an idiot when it comes to computers. it will take me a while to digest all the stuff in op and actually implement it. i don't want to send coins to a wallet that i don't trust was made correctly. so, i have an idea in the meantime. i am getting a new computer anyways. what if i buy it tomorrow, instead of waiting til next week. then i can use it to go only to bitaddress.org, unplug computer from internet, create new address + private key on brand new computer, and send coins there. then i can just keep it unplugged from internet til i get around to figuring out steps in op. would this be secure?
