new iPod updater is essential.

Apple has released a new updater for the iPod that's long overdue. Pod Software 1.2.6 provides improved battery management which solves a problem that may appear to shorten your iPod’s battery life. Everyone I know has had this problem. Also, note: When you download the updater, the installer only installers the updater software to your Mac (or Windows box) in the Applications / Utilities folder. You then need to run the updater itself. Basically it's three steps.

1. Download updater installer.
2. Install updater onto your Mac.
3. Run the updater from your Mac to update the iPod.

It's confusing because it seems like step 2 did it already.
