I sync my e-mail, contacts and calendar with google. I get a day and a half out of my battery.

Your phone seldom connects with Google to sync these things, only when there is a change in one of them.

I would bet that under Location & Compass "Use Wireless Networks" uses much more. To even turn on using wireless networks for location you have to agree to let Google collect data whether aps are using it or not.

To me this is a lot more Orwellian than anything Motorola or AT&T have done to 'lock down' the phone.
