Nice to meet you all, virtually. Of course I'm here because something went wrong - a recent update has hosed the battery life of my HTC Desire which is a shame because up to that point the device had performed perfectly. I expect you all know why, and probably have a solution, at least that's what I'm hoping... Perhaps one day I'll be posting solutions too. I've worked the past 15 years as an embedded software engineer writing operating system, platform and device driver software for a good number of the phones you see around you. Although I have zero knowledge about Android I'm pretty curious what goes on the inside, if only my day job didn't get in the way of so much interesting fiddling. Cheers, HellesAngel PS.
