PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Because I've been spending days browsing through XDA, reading CM changelogs, and flashing nightly builds, I'm still in an Android state of mind, so excuse me for more talk on the subject. An interesting study has been performed which found that advertisements in Android applications are a huge battery drain - they account for up to 75% of an application's battery usage.

I have no qualms blocking adds, but i prefer not using those apps anyway as they are in the way and suck up bandwidth (which i care more about than power).

Still, there are some apps id buy if i could...
Hell, i'd even donate some cash to those making only free stuff without adds because i respect their way of doing things.

But alas i gots no credit card, and my credit rating aint worth shit ;)
