    I like to listen to streaming content while around the house. For my battery life, what is better to use 3G or Wifi?

    I would disable one if I enable the other of course.

    Like said above WIFI.
    3G drains the battery much faster.

    Wifi without a doubt is better for your battery.

    Alrighty then, in that case I think I'll turn off 3G unless I really really need it and leave Wifi on.

    Thanks for all the responses!
