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.

LIke many here, I would pay for an app that I used a lot if possible to avoid ads. But, if that's not a possibility, I will block the ads for the data usage. I don't have an unlimited data plan, but a rather limited one that I don't want to exceed. If it were easy to do, I'd allot an app a given amount of bandwidth to use per month, which it could then use to suck up downloading ads.
