Not to mention the apps that actively seek a connection to update themselves (see weather apps, email notification, etc.).
For example - I have Corporate email always running when I start up - wtf?
I also have other tasks that I want running at certain times of the day, but other times I could care less - when I am in class from 8-12, I don't give a rat's derriere about the weather, and would like to kill weatherbug so it stops trying to get updates when it wants to, killing my battery using the 3G....
What's so wrong with wanting to kill those types of apps? yes, it is not windows - but yes it still uses my battery!!!!
