My wife has no problems on her iPhone4. But IOS4.3 on my iPod touch has absolutely sucked the life out of it. It now seems to run slow, but worse is that I'm running into strange video artifacts now. When wireless sends or receives, the top that shows my signal strength blinks in what looks like a square box and it causes the whole screen to get dark/light. I've found ways to go back to 4.2.1, but I'm concerned it'll screw up the apps.. but my battery life is significantly down from before, SIGNIFICANTLY down, to the point where I can't get through an audiobook segment without grabbing a charger. ARGH

I have the newest iPod touch Mc544ll. I will fool with it. The brightness change on data transfer is crazy annoying.

Hrmmm... Genius Bar sounds like the first best step.


I've noticed nothing different from 4.3 compared to 4.2. Aside from the hour is sucked out of my life to get iTunes and the iPhone updated. HomeSharing seems more a demo than a solution to any real problem.


Seems 4.3 is more targeted to the iPad.

Well that makes me feel a lot less insane. My new iPod touch seems fine, but I'm leaving it at 4.2.1 for now. The fact that the screen would go dark/bright/dark/bright everytime email would come in is incredibly annoying and it drained the battery in a hurry. I figure they will put out 4.3.1 soon enough.

Yeah, that blinking is exactly what I (did) get. But they changed my iPod so I'm not getting it anymore, I just haven't upgraded to 4.3 on this one yet. Like I said, I figure 4.3.1 has to be in the woodwork somewhere.
