Anonymous: Why Android eats more data than iPhone


Email

"Hi TNT crew,

Yesterday you reported on a study showing that Android users use more data than iPhone 4 users. As a former iPhone owner and current Android user, I think it simply comes down to background apps: On the iPhone twitter and facebook fetch updates when the app is launched. However, on Android a lot of apps remain in memory and have the option to update in the background. It's nice because my Twitter feed is usually up-to-date but it does increase data usage and battery drain.

Love the show, Jason in Austin, TX"

"Tom & Co,


Couldn't the .gov make wikiLeaks ineffective by giving them what they want; why not just pour a terabyte a day of crap documents into their servers ... making the 'real' leaks a needle in a big haystack?

Just a thought. Love the show.

Mike"
