    So I've been uninstalling some apps I no longer use, trying to conserve battery life as much as I can.
    I was wondering; Does having WiFi on drain more battery, than the network itself? When it comes to updating weather and such. I have my Beautiful Widget weather thing on my home screen to update every 30 minutes.

    Theme: I was wondering if anyone know how to change the battery icon at the top. I've seen a few themes with percentages within the battery icon. That would be useful. Does it involve rooting? I have LauncherPro installed and stuff. -thanks.

    Having anything set to update that often will run your battery down faster and it won't matter which network you are using. The phone will require just as much juice to go out and get that data either way.

    Mods to the status bar would require root.

    I see I see. Thanks. I guess I'll look into the root thing.
    I've been skeptical about it though, fear of bricking it.
