    Red face Got MBP back from service and battery is now horrible! Oh wait...
    Had my MBP serviced for the anti-reflective delam. Got it back and noticed the battery was really draining fast. About 2x normal.

    For a day I was really concerned that something had happened to it.

    But then I realized...oh wait, it's Thanksgiving break and I've spent most of my waking hours working on Scratch projects with my daughter. Scratch is MIT's on-line code development platform for kids.

    Scratch is Adobe Flash-based.

    Didn't work on Scratch yesterday and battery performance was just fine. Steve was right...

    Nice story. A useful reminder that we often forget just how much we may be pushing the Mac....and its battery.

    I think the morale of that story is, avoid Flash at all costs.
