    Anyone else having the issue where when you tether with you blackberry, the battery drains so fast? I've been streaming 4 episodes of flashpoint on my Playbook through tethering on my Torch and by the time the last episode ended, my battery went from 100% to 55%. I mean is that normal? If so then what's the point of tethering when you are away from an outlet and can't charge your bb when its dead? Or is this not normal and that there's something wrong with my battery?

    thats like 2 and 1/2 hrs of streaming flash. basically one of the most intensive thing you can do. ofcourse the battery is gonna drain.

    jacking someones thready with your own unrelated issue is frowned upon. that said i would start with un installing opera mini and see if the problem stops.
