    Hey Everyone, my gf just got her ipod touch 2g 8 gig yesterday and we updated it to 2.2. Since then her ipod gets pretty hot, she mainly plays games on it. Mine doesn't seem to have the issue. And the battery dies fast. Whats up?

    tell her to stop playing the games then.....
    the ipod probably needs to generate ALOT of the energy in the battery to operate the controls [i.e touching the screen and the ipod responds] and the sound the gamecreate

    If it gets too hot it will fry the battery, return it to play it safe. (I could be wrong, But a battery that doesn't last long is most likely defective)

    I dunno, it's my girls ipod. Mine seems to be fine. All she does is go on AIM and play games. So maybe 2 hrs or so? Some music here or there.

    Take it back; Apple will replace iPods under warranty that have battery lives less than half of the advertised time.
