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.

Unfortunatly the obscene amount of in your face banner, popup, etc ads that infest the net make adblock a necessity. Just like spam filters for email.

A a site owner myself I see no problems with adblock, fact is I encourage them. Then again my revenue model doesn't revolve around ads.
