So imho no big deal.
This is what you people dont seem to get. The casual user doesnt know a damn thing about rooting their phone and flashing kernels just to get through the day and neither should they have to. Like I said, Apple figured out how to improve their battery life and the 3G/3Gs had some of the worst battery life out there. They knew it was an issue for their customers and they solved the problem. That's just the bottom line.
