1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    So i removed 3 or 4 or a dozen apps I don't really use. Downloaded a couple, three, six maybe new ones. Now my battery usage went from lasting mostly the day, to only lasting until dinner. So I lost about 4 hours. interesting that. I check battery usage and it usually was Display was the biggest drain, not it is cell standby and phone idle (idle, really?) So how can I tell what is actually using battery?

    I am using battery monitor widget. From the market. Works very well and has a nice interface. You don't have to use it as a widget despite the name. Check it out :)

    If you want to double your battery life I strongly suggest Juice Defender Ultimate. If you want to see what is using up all your battery I would suggest any battery monitoring app/ widget.
