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.

If the ads are impacting my bandwidth, slowing performance, causing elevated data and/or battery usage, or anything else that affects either my wallet or my experience, I have absolutely no problem blocking them.

Would doing so cause any moral impact for me? Not in the least. Like most others, I have no problem paying the few bucks most mobile apps cost. But, I have never and will never get reeled into advertising within software. Whether the ads are blocked or not, my money does not change hands because of such advertising. If I block ads, it's not causing 'you' any profit loss.
