    I just updated to iOS 4 today, and got iBooks. The overall performance of the OS is slower. The iBooks app animations with page turning is obviously optimized for OpenGL-ES, something older devices don't have. And iPod touch 2G users don't get springboard wallpaper when iPhone 3G users do :/

    And my device in particular: any reason why apple WOULDN'T update the CPU and GPU on the 8GB model?

    Because they want a low-price device to sell.

    Well aside from that, why do some apps perform very slowly? And why don't we get multitasking (which worked fine with BACKGROUNDER) or homescreen wallpaper (well maybe winterboard's slowness had something to do with that)?

    If you've run background you know that it lags. Apple doesn't want that. Same with wallpapers.

    Well apps (aside from cydia which took up all the ram), even ones that didn't natively support backgrounding ran at good speeds on my device.

    yeah, but only few apps are ran in the background. Apple's multitasking makes it so that most apps are paused when you switch apps. this still keeps speed/performance while saving battery.

    Why is backgrounder so hard on the battery?

    What your iPod does isnt what all ipods do. My iPod which is the 8Gb MC didnt run good with multi-tasking. My battery was drained when just running twitter, textfree, and what ever game i was playing if any). Now for wallpaper wise, they didnt feel the wallpapers worked good with animations (like folders) on that device. You should complain. Our device is supported, when some 1G users are not.

    And why would wallpapers lag? What I'm saying if backgrounder didn't do TOO much harm, then apple multitasking can't do much more, right?
