I finally got the latest version of the Android Market app last week. I happened to check my running applications in Settings and I noticed a process called AlarmService under com.android.vending. It seems to use up about 9 MB of RAM and is constantly running in the background. Does anyone know what this process is for? I noticed that my battery life has seemed a little worse for wear since the new Android Market was installed. It is by no means horribly degraded, but a bit lower than the norm.
