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:

I will use an ad blocker for general web browsing i.e. random page searches and such. The sites that I frequent like OSNews, Engadget, Questionable Content, etc. I will whitelist as a way of thanking them for providing content I want to read.

For sites that already get my money, such as Amazon, Newegg,, and so on, I use the ad blocker because I'm already lining their pockets by purchasing goods there.

As for the accusation of "attacking" your users, I don't know about that but your language was quite inflammatory in the message in question. I know I can get a bit flowery when I get into a heated discussion but that was bad enough to make me wonder how you really see your site visitors.
