    So when I open an application (mail, contacts, a game, whatever) it automatically goes into the multi-tasking bar. I went into the multi-tasking bar and saw that it had 10 apps listed. Are these apps continually running? Does this make the phone slower? Do I have to delete the apps out of the multi-tasking bar every time I'm done using them?

    No don't worry. Continue using your phone as you always have. The OS will take care of the rest.

    No. Most apps are using "Fast app switching" that put's them into a freeze state where they are paused and use up no memory. Only apps I can think of with true multitasking are the music Apps: Pandora and Slacker.
