Power Consumption by Android Phone

 I have a dated T-Mobile Dash that runs Windows Mobile 6.x. For
example, if I run the camera application and use the browser for a few
minutes, the battery power consumption is significantly higher
(understandably) than when these applications are turned off.

Idle (non-active) mobile apps, by default, drain the battery unless
the user manually invokes the Task Manager and kills these non-active
apps after initial usage.

I haven't examined Android phones closely but the thought that
occurred to me was the following.

Why don't we include an option in the device profile where a mobile
application would either terminate or be in a state where there is
fractional battery power consumption so that a large majority of the
existing battery power could be leveraged by the "active" mobile apps
that ultimately serve to enhance the mobile user experience.

2. Creating a dynamic (video) Overlay on Google Maps on Android

I'm trying to create a map overlay for displaying a video stream
(MJPEG) on top of a Mapview.

Currently I've a standalone activity that creates a data thread for
fetching MJPEG video frames. I'm using a handler to send a frame (as a
Bitmap) from the data thread to the main activity which then updates
the UI.

I'm not sure how I can implement "refresh" for updating my "overlayed"
video stream.
