“Siri, find me a lawyer in Cupertino.” Over 100 enterprising and quite jaded iPhone 4s users are suing Apple for advertising campaigns that include “misleading and deceptive message.”
Represented by law firm Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd, Brooklynite Frank M. Fazio is part of a class action suit seeking $5m in damages from the Silicon Valley behemoth. “In the commercials, all of these tasks are done with ease with the assistance of the iPhone 4S’s Siri feature, a represented functionality contrary to the actual operating results and performance of Siri,” Mr. Fazio alleges in the lawsuit, filed in California federal court last week.
Mr. Fazio’s claim also states that “Siri either did not understand what the Plaintiff was asking, or, after a very long wait time, responded with the wrong answer.” He says that if Siri doesn’t work, the iPhone 4s is “merely a more expensive iPhone 4.”
Sorry, did he think half a grand would buy him a miracle? You mean Siri can’t actually help navigate Santa? Or turn a road trip with your significant other from a 3,000 mile long shitstorm on wheels into a lovely bonding experience? For shame!
Who will call me Rock God now?
