Closing streams like a boss

This is one of my favorite tips and I also consider it a good practice.
How to close any java input or output Stream.

/**
* Closes the specified stream.
*
* @param stream The stream to close.
*/
private static void closeStream(Closeable stream) {
if (stream != null) {
   try {
      stream.close();
   } catch (IOException e) {
   Log.e("IO", "Could not close stream", e);
}
}
