7/5/2010 14:51:512nd Generation iPod Touch16 GigabytesYesinstalled this update "fix" http://support.apple.com/kb/TS33984I didn't try any of the workarounds because my main use is email and news (including push notifications), not music. Blue Tooth has always been switched off. I don't think the fix had any effect on battery, but it solved the exchange problem. I noticed that push notifications came in much quicker after the upgrade, which was nice. The problem is that with iOS4 I sometimes need to recharge during the day, which never happened before. I wonder what it means for battery lifetime!No
