    Wow... I've gotten MUCH better battery life since the newest update. I noticed a bit of a quicker battery drain after the iOS 4 update. Before I was down to 93% after watching a 45 minute video on a full battery. The last few days that I noticed that I was still at 100% after 45 min. This was how my iPad was when I first gotten it last year and all the way until the iOS4 update! Whoo hoo!

    :)

    I heard about this before, are you talking about a iPad 2? Would this pertain to the iPad 1 as well?

    umm no it's not... I watch videos nearly daily... and I've owned my iPad ever since release day last April. Ever since iOS4 I would go through at very best 6% on a 43 min episode. For the last 2 days It's been at 100% from a full charge after a 42 min show. After it drops down to 99 though it drops a little quicker but it was down to about 94% after an hour and twenty odd minutes (two "hour long" episodes) of movie watching.

    It's back to how it was before. There is no placebo effect... but I know for a fact it was like this before iOS4 and now after 3 updates it's back to the way it was. Brightness was at about 60-70%.

    kind of strange but when i watch online videos (using VEVO HD) it takes about 2% for a 15mins vid, but with web browsing, it's about 1% for 5 mins :|

    Why would you still run 4.3.2 when 4.3.3 has been out for a while? Great battery life I might add...

    Nope... just better battery life.

    Actually my iPad is feeling a bit slow these days.
    Great job on the sarcasm... how clever of you. :D
