iPod Touch iOS4 Battery Flaw

It has not been a great couple of weeks for Apple.  Although to their defense, they did sell 1.7 million iPhone 4's within the first week.  Anyhow, any of you that are somewhat involved in the tech world have heard about the antennae/reception issue with the new iPhone. Apple has been getting some heavy criticism in the press for this and the company has not offered a definitive solution as of yet. They say they are "working on it".

With all the iPhone talk, another major issue seemed to have flown under the radar. I have just discovered this the other day while upgrading my iPod Touch 2g to the new iOS4.  Research has confirmed this major issue. Ever since I upgraded the OS, my iPod's battery drains drastically while in sleep mode. This has now happened back to back days. Every morning I wake up to my iPod to check my mail, news, etc.  I  then put it on sleep mode and take off for work. These past 2 days I have come back from work (9hrs later) an my iPod has little or no charge left.  Before upgrading to iOS4, my ipod would have little or no change to the battery while in sleep mode. 

The iPod Touch 2nd gen seems to be experiencing this issue more than the rest of the iPhone or iPod models. It is pretty unfortunate. I  have just unjailbroken my iPod too hoping that I would approve of the new OS. I know regret my decision and am waiting for a fix for this. Ii know Apple is aware of the issue as thousands of iPod users have let it be known. I am now waiting for a software update and anxious to "stick it to the man" and get back on the jailbroken train. I guess I just expected more from a company that is defining new mobile technology these days. They clearly jumped the release on this a bit, and clearly the testing stage missed out on some MAJOR flaws.  And for the record, the iPod/iPhone/iPad are the ONLY Apple products I will ever buy or supports. As of now I only have an iPod for the sole reason that it truly is the best portable music player/mobile device out there.  Besides that, I hate Apple and am disgusted when people say they like macbooks because "they can't get viruses."
