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.

We as consumers are strange folks - we find it OK to pay € 2 for a cup of coffee, or € 500 for a smartphone, but € 0,50 for an app is "too expensive"

That being said, it's OK to block ads. I do it on the desktop as well.......
