    GREAT WRITEUP -- How Android Uses RAM

    I came across this explanation over on Android Central about the way Android manages RAM, as well as a discussion about task managers versus task killers. It's a bit longer than the average article, but it's well worth the read, IMO:

    RAM: What it is, how it's used, and why you shouldn't care | Android Central

    Hopefully, this will give us all a little more knowledge when addressing these types of issues with the less "geekily-inclined" people in our lives.

    This sort of stuff should be part of their general training program for techs, no?

    Verizon store pushed the hell out of ATK..Best Buy where I originally got mine does not. The guy at Best Buy spefically told me NOT to run ATK....at least some of the folks out there seem to be backing off of the task killer thing

    Mrs Skins has bad battery issues with her rooted TBolt and runs the heck out of ATK....I sent her the article, maybe that will change her mind , because she sure is not listening to me...

    Skins tell the Mrs that I nearly doubled my brother's TB battery life by uninstalling ATK and installing juice defender free version ran at standard settings and uninstalling all widgets except for the HTC weather clock.
