    Now that you realized that you no longer need to spend any time thinking about running apps you will have lots of time to do things you enjoy.

    Now you never have to worry or think about it again. If anything, you can reboot your phone every few days and nothing else ever needs to be done.

    That seems like it does what every other task manager does, which is limit apps from going into the memory or kills them so more can get in there? Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Also, RAM uses little power, not sure why people are so anal about the amount of processes in RAM. I think it matters more if the background programs are using CPU cycles instead of the amount of RAM.

    It takes just as much energy to store nothing in memory as it does to store something. So, knowing this Android wisely figures out what apps you use most and it keeps them in memory. Now, along comes the task killer which kills all those tasks. Android now has to reopen them when you want to use them using a lot of power in the process. DON'T USE TASK KILLERS!

    It makes "the table" a bit smaller, I think. It doesn't appear to affect battery life and my phone never gets bogged down.
