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.

However, I don't think you a right to block them based on the face they're using your bandwidth or battery just because you didn't want to pay for the ad-free version. That in itself is a different matter then rights over your device.

As I said in my original post, I always choose the paid version if one is available. I'm always happy to pay for quality software. Hell, I've even donated to some free apps when the authors asked nicely. I'm not looking for a free ride here... only requesting that if you want to get paid, offer me a version without ads.
