    I'm seeing a few strange entries in TasKiller, stuff like:

    com.google.android.apps.maps:FriendService and a couple other ones with long cryptic names like that. They won't end in any way other than through force kill and when I do that, they come right back.

    Any way to tell what these things actually are and what's launching them?

    On a more general note, is something like TasKiller really necessary even? When my Droid first boots up, it has a huge number of things in the TasKiller list... this is normal?

    Thanks!

    I think the FriendService is part of Google Maps Latitude.

    I don't even have that set up or enabled, should it actually be running despite that?
