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.

Wholeheartedly agree. I haven't yet paid for an app for my android phone, because the ad supported versions are 'sufficient', and oftentimes I end up using the app once or twice in a month, so I can live with the ads. Are ads annoying? Not really, they live at the bottom of the screen and suck up a little bandwidth periodically, it's not a big deal. If I do end up using apps more frequently, I'll reconsider the ad versions (hey, the market at work!). But I will not block ads in apps.
