    For motors..definately. Compression is king
    For gaping wounds or gunshots..again..definately want compression.
    For Blackberry..meh..I'd prefer an option personally.

    Are to discussing RIM's OTA data compression or the device STORAGE compression setting enable - ON or OFF?
    Edit: added word 'storage'

    It all depends on how much data you have on your plan. I appreciated compression a lot more back when I had only 500MB to play with, compared to the 6GB I have now (special offer).

    From the blackberry docs:

    For BlackBerry smartphones running BlackBerry Device Software 3.8 or 4.0, set the BlackBerry smartphone to allow content compression. Although content compression causes the BlackBerry smartphone to work harder (thus, using more battery power), it will make sure that email messages use the least amount of flash memory that is possible.
    I kinda doubt the space is much of an issue anymore, unless you are keeping all emails indefinitely.

    i turn it off. I have 300mb of application space... I figure there will be overhead in uncompressing and compressing of data to make it slower although I dont really see the difference.
