I was using a beta of Transfirm's "RSS Feed Reader", and I set all of my RSS channels to check for new headlines every 24 hours thinking that this would keep my data usage in check. I guess my mistake was putting that much faith in a beta - as it turns out, there seems to be a significant amount of data transfer activity even when the reader is idling and not actively checking for new content, and I had a healthy usage of 79MB for the month of January. Oops.

My lesson-learnt would be to use betas cautiously - some of their functionality may not work as advertised.
