Apple sued by iPhone 4S users over Siri
A New York man has filed a lawsuit against Apple for misleading iPhone4S customers over Siri. According to the Wall Street Journal, Frank M. Fazio is accusing Apple of false advertising and "alleging that the company's commercials convey a 'misleading and deceptive message' about Siri's capabilities."
Fazio claims that in Apple commercials, Siri can easily "make appointments, find restaurants, and even learn the guitar chords to classic rock songs." The plaintiff goes on to claim in court documents that the false advertisement caused "consumers to purchase the iPhone 4S over other smartphones because its Siri feature."
Examples cited in the court document include the commercial of a couple driving from the East Coast to Santa Cruz, Calif. In the television advertisement, the couple asks Siri for directions, their location and where to get gas.
Fazio is filing the suit on his behalf, as well as other customers with similar sentiments, alleging that Apple violates the Consumer Legal Remedies Act and Unfair Competition Law.
