    push notification is apple's answer to multi tasking...since multi-tasking (havin many apps open at once) takes battery, they came up with push notifications. basiclally it is used for IM clients....what it does is...lets say you use the AIM client, and you log on to AIM, then you are chattin wit your friends but at the same time you also want to look at a webpage in safari. so, instead of having to sign off each time...you can close the app (and your account is still online...not on ur phone but in the servers)... and you can look at watever weboage, use any other app, and during this time if your friend replies to you on AIM, then you get a notification saying that your friend replied! hope you understood...just look on apples website to fully understand!!
