The battery enclosed in the iPhone can only be charged approximately 300 times before it will be in need of replacement, necessitating a new battery annually for owners of the iPhone.
Ha ha, oh wow.

Looks like someone didn't read the manual.

If he is so offended by this and he knows that Apple has done this with the iPods why would he not just take it back if it is such an issue? We have folks here declare for one reason or another that they had some type of problem whether real or perceived and they just returned the iPhone, end of story.

This jerk has to start a lawsuit, Apple needs to countersue on the grounds of stupidity & ignorance.

I like how the "professional" document has a common grammatical error ...many times!!

"Apple marked it's iPhone ..." and "it's battery" :rolleyes:

"iPhone's"

He had 14 days to return it for a full refund! If he asked nicely, I bet they would have waved the re-stock fee too. This will never fly.

These damn frivolous law suits really piss me off. All they do is add cost to the products we buy.

Wonder if Cheney will sue.

Cheney...LMAO!

I would much rather see someone challenge the legality of locking the iPhone to any carrier. The Congressional and legal environment is as good as could be for this. And there are compelling arguments that can be made for prohibiting locking.

If someone else credible and smart jumped on the battery issue, I would rather see what concessions could be achieved on the cost and hassle of changing the battery. There is room for improvement on that.

The law suit is a complete waste of resources and, more importantly, doesn't help any iPhone owner. Anyone who didn't like the non-replaceable battery, could choose to not buy the iPhone or return it. You can't claim Apple didn't publicize this issue before June 29th, because they did.

The dumb attorney is holding telephone interviews with the press. :rolleyes:

Usually the smart ones decline to comment, because anything said to the press can be used against them.

Anyone can sue anybody for anything in this country :D
I think the original Acura NSX owners sued over tires, because the vehicle tires cost too much and didn't last long.

But that still is a problem with some of the odd-sized low profile sport tires on budget vehicles with the sport wheel tires today. A $17k car that has $1k sets of replacement tires at the dealer.

And likely the owners of vehicles with the run flats will face similar issues where only a dealer can get the tires for high prices, but may not stock them.

Misconception. The real story:
the kids working the window thought the woman was a bitch, so they put the coffee in the microwave for a period of time which melted the styrofoam causing it to break when the woman picked it up after it was handed to her in a carrier.
