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.

"As such, with just a bare 1G connection, I'm well within my right to remove ads from web pages to speed up page loading.


I have fairly good Internet here, but ads still slow page loading and waste my precious laptop battery. According to your standards it's well within my right to block ads on osnews, but if everybody does it, how will you survive? Will you launch a paid version? OSNews Gold?


We have a paid, ad-free version, actually. Other than that - lots of people block ads on OSNews, and I don't see how we have any right to tell you not to.
"
Wow, for as long as I've been coming here wasn't aware of the ad free. Just signed up
