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

    Greetings,
    I have a Droid 3 - rooted. I use both ES Task Manager, and Advanced Task Killer to manage apps that TSR.
    However, aside from some apps that I wish to have remain in memory, I have noticed that quite a few things seem to be getting loaded into memory without my having launched them!
    For example, Maps, Latitude, NPR, My Verizon Mobile... just to name a few. Plenty of others as well.

    Now, I've come to terms with the fact that many developers want their apps staying resident so they can collect data. I use Permissions Denied to prevent this abuse when I can.
    However, there are some apps which seem to be just loading without my having launched them.
    As an example, I noticed the NPR app in memory recently, and I know for certain I had not launched it since previous reboot.

    Are there any files I can edit in order to see what is loading either on startup or on some kind of schedule?

    Please advise what measures I can try.
    Thanks.
