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.

At work, I browse the web using a first-gen eMac equipped with insufficient RAM for its current OS (512MB, and it had 384MB when I got it). You should try it too, it gives some perspective as for why people with slow machines and/or crappy network connection can make the decision to block every ad without being complete douchebags.

Then of course, I am okay with ads on my personal laptop, on which they are not much of an annoyance as long as they do not start to use obnoxious Flash animations.
