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.

RE[5]: websites?

Member since:

Then some asshole comes and proclaims from behind his computer monitor that site owners should basically work for free for his enjoyment or benefit. How is that fair?

I'm not saying that you have to work for free. I'm saying that people are not morally obligated to allow advertisements to be downloaded and displayed on their computers.

I assume someone will then respond to this with, "But then how will the website owner make money?" Well, I don't know, but if I did, I'd probably be rich.

Personally, I choose to browse the Internet without advertisements. I also have a website that I host for free without advertisements, but that's probably irrelavant since I only get about 10 visitors per month...
