Lawsuit aims to end iPhone 4S sales.
Ahh yes, of course, the token lawsuit against every Apple innovation. And as absurd.
Frank Fazio has taken to the courts of California claiming that iPhone 4S’ heavily advertised Siri voice-recognition application does not perform upto expectations. In his lawsuit, Fazio explains his dilemma: “Promptly after the purchase of his iPhone 4S, [Fazio] realized that Siri was not performing as advertised. For instance, when [Fazio] asked Siri for directions to a certain place, or to locate a store, Siri either did not understand what Plaintiff was asking, or after a very long wait time, responded with the wrong answer.”
The lawyers handling Fazio’s case hopes to end sales of the iPhone 4S and claim sweet damages while they are at it.
“Notwithstanding Apple’s extensive multi-million dollar advertising campaign showcasing the Siri feature, and the fact that the iPhone 4S is more expensive than the iPhone 4, the iPhone 4S’s Siri feature does not perform as advertised, rendering the iPhone 4S merely a more expensive iPhone 4,” the suit claims.
Apple has declined to comment. Probably choking themselves with laughter.
