Yet another moron has filed a class action suit against Apple over Siri and it’s apparent inability to work as advertised. For me, Siri works fine, and I wonder why people choose to sue rather than return a device that doesn’t work as expected.
The new suit, filed in a U.S. District Court by a David Jones living in California, makes the same basic accusation that the previous complaint did — that Apple oversells Siri’s abilities in advertising and TV commercials.
Apple officials were unavailable for comment on the lawsuits on Wednesday.
“Through its nationwide multimedia marketing campaign, Apple disseminates false and deceptive representations regarding the functionality of the Siri feature,” the suit alleges. “For example, in many of Apple’s television commercials, consumers are shown using Siri to make appointments, find restaurants, and even to learn the guitar chords to classic rock songs. In its advertisements, Apple depicts these tasks as easily accomplished “just by asking” Siri.”
However, Jones hasn’t found that using Siri is that easy, the suit said.
