How to Kill Your MacBook Battery: Leave an iTunes Store Page Open in iTunes

Kirk McElhearn:

If you use a laptop, and your battery dies quickly, check and see if you accidentally left iTunes open on an iTunes Store page, even in the background. Look how much CPU it uses to simply display a front page, and rotate graphics in the carrousel at the top of the page.

It’s easy to pick on iTunes, but this is pretty egregious.
