lol i actually know a couple people that walk around with their iphone's in one of those docks that carry AA batteries lol
Every forum seems to have a post saying that you should dump the app killers, but I personally will not live without one. On my previous Moto Droid, I always had significantly better battery life when I ran Appolo Task Killer and auto-killed running apps (that weren't in my ignore list) after 10 minutes of inactivity. Certain programs just want to constantly be open and it would drive me insane. In addition to that, I would also notice performance issues on my Droid due to a large number of items being opened. I don't think the Incredible will have this specific problem, but the battery issues will definitely be there, at least based on my experiences in the past.
But how can processor usage NOT be related to battery life? That makes no sense.everyone always relates Task Killers to processor usage, not battery life.
