    Is it true that jailbreaking your iPod greatly reduces your iPod battery life?

    Someone posted this somewhere but i don't remember where i read it... just wanted some clarification.

    If you leave applications running in the background, or simply leave applications open it will certainly drain your battery life.

    However, if you just use your device regularly as you would pre-jailbreak, you shouldn't see any difference in battery life.

    Yeah, unless it's an app that is just "running" in the background with no app screen, MobileScrobbler is an example of this, "Scrobbled" on firmware 2.x
