How's your battery life on iOS 6.1? [Poll]

How's your battery life with iOS 6.1?

iOS 6.1 has been out for a while now -- and iOS 6.1.1 just hit for the iPhone 4S -- so we're wondering how your battery life is doing? It seems every time Apple pushed out an update, some people get better battery life, others get worse battery life, and many just stay the same.

Part of this good be fresh starts with fresh versions cleaning out cruft that has built up for a while, or it could be bit-rot from old installs backed up and restored far too often. If your battery life is horrible, we have a bunch of really useful iOS 6 battery life fixes for you to try out. Either way, we want to know what you're experiencing!

Let us know how your battery life is doing, whether you set up as a new iPhone or iPad, whether you're jailbroken, and whether or not you have tons of push notifications going off all the time, or if you're running with almost none.

Mikey microphone for iPhone and iPod review

I've had to record a lot of audio at trade shows like Macworld and CES using the iPhone as a microphone, and while it was okay, it was never ideal. The Mikey by Blue Microphones brings it much closer to ideal. The Mikey connects to your iPhone or iPod using the 30-pin Dock connector (or through a Lightning to 30-pin adapter for newer iOS devices) and turns them into mobile recording powerhouses.
