    I'm checking out the apps in the Droid Market and when I go to install them, a red pop up window says "This app has access to the following...
    *System tools...the app can prevent phone from sleeping.Will this drain my battery quicker?
    *Storage (modify/delete SD card contents)
    *Hardware controls (record audio, take pictures)

    Since I'm a new Droid user, I'm not sure what all of this means to me.
    The apps I was checking out were the ones listed here and the 10 Must Have Apps article. I sure could use your help!
