Flash and Power
February 1, 2009 1 Comment
The principal issue though is power. Every time I access a Flash driven site on my laptop (such as YouTube for example), the CPU meter shoots up, the battery life expectancy shoots down, and the fan comes on after 5 minutes all suggesting that the life is being sucked out of the batteries much like one would gulp down a cold drink on a hot summer day.
Currently my iPhone lasts about two days on a charge (and one day if I use WiFi and/or BlueTooth), I wonder how long it will last if I start using Flash? I would also want to see a way to turn off Flash in the browser,
