mine seems better. But I have an iPod Touch 2G with OS 3.0.

If the world didn't suck, we'd all fall off.
But life's made better because of iPods.

Yes, this has been happening to a lot of people.

One thing I tried that worked very well was to go to Settings > Mail > Fetch New Data > And turn Push off, and set Fetch to "Manually."

This helped my battery out a good bit =]

Mine seems to last longer. I played real racing for like 45 minutes after hitting 20% left and wasn't even done yet

Mine seems to go down faster while playing games, and slower while watching movies. I thought the new more powerful graphics might drain bettery faster. And, it was interesting that Apple advertised the improved battery performance by highlighting better music, web-browsing, and movie battery life...they said nothing of games...which I thought was a little shady.
