    It seems to me that all of these much-touted app killing programs are pretty much worthless. I kill all sorts of stuff I never even opened, and 5 minutes later, it's back again. I'm probably expending more power killing programs than I would if I just let the phone sit idle.

    Am I mistaken? What good are the app killing programs if the programs keep coming back?

    I'm starting to wonder if the hyped "run multiple applications at once" bit is more of a drawback than anything...

    Edit: Would there be any harm in removing the Footprints, Twitter, Gmail and Market programs that came with the phone that I don't use yet keep popping up?

    If you remove gmail you cant get your mail.

    If you remove market you cant get apps.

    You can however do this once your phone is rooted. That is if you can root your type of phone.

    If I remove Gmail, there's still the default Mail app. By "Market" I meant "Stocks", sorry.
