    The battery does drain extremely fast. But i think it's all part of Apples plan. Expect new iPods this September. And expect Apple to completely drop this iPod, as usual

  8. You should really try contacting Apple about that... Never dies that fast for me.... I got 4 hours last night, and I had wifi on!

    It's much easier to walk into the Apple store and get your ipod switched because it's no longer jailbroken, and you don't have to worry about having to go back and re installing everything, and making it look perfect.

    The 2.0 backup feature is complete!

    I'm getting about between two and a half and 3 hour playing Enigmo or SMB, but the mileage change depending the application, but I feel that is really faster.

    I was concern because I use a lot my ipod in flghts for 4 hour or more.

    no, i meant playing super monkey ball. and is it true that like if the battery is full itll last longer than if it isnt? sorry if it sounded stupid, lemme explain:

    ok so if when you have 40%, playing exactly 10 mins of smb will take up like say...20%of the battery,

    if you have 99% and you play smb for exactly 10 mins, it will only use like 16% of battery. it this true or not?

    oh damn i just realised something thats eating my battery like hot cakes...settings>fetch new dats
