    my newly purchased ipod touch is heating up when i charge it, the heat is coming from lower left corner on the back. then when it gets 100% charged, the battery lasts for about 2 hours with aim, facebook, mail, and other apps that require wifi. is that common?

    Yes, the battery can get a bit warm. Perfectly normal. You might notice the same thing happen with your mobile phone after a few minutes use.

    Heat is not surprising, but 2 hour battery life is-that doesn't sound right to me-time to make an appointment with the Genius Bar.

    I disagree. It's pretty easy to drain the battery in two hours with heavy use and the wifi on. I would suggest the op alter his usage and try turning down the screen brightness.

    I suggest turning off Location Services, that was a HUGE battery drain on mine.
