Apps Reopen Automatically After Kill?
I installed the task killer app as recommended by the telesales rep. Is it normal for a lot of apps (cardoc, appbrain, skype, etc) to automatically reopen thus hogging memory after i have killed them?
They seem to start automatically. Is this normal? How does one disable them to keep from opening and hogging the memory?

Killing an app to have it reboot will cause more CPU cycles, thus consume more memory. Your phone will Automatically clear up the needed memory when it needs it and programs running in the background will NOT consume enough battery to be worth killing.
Your phone doesn't need a task killer unless you have a poorly coded app (and if the app is coded poorly you should uninstall it). I haven't run a task killer on my OG Droid (that has less ram and a slower processor) in going on four months with no issues. My battery lasts just as long, if not longer.I'm a tech junkie with a weak spot for Good Music, Good Beer, and Excellent Coffee.

I was just joking around though (mostly). The task killer discussions are always the most common. I think because all of us have or had a mentality of using them after our Blackberry and Windows Mobile experiences. It doesn't help that we have Verizon stores out there telling people to use them either.
