If you're faster on vodafone on EDGE than your friend on 3G, then what the hell, why didn't Apple pick vodafone?! It was Apple that chose who they went with (they weren't forced, they chose who paid the most), so it can't be the networks fault alone.
Do some studying before throwing profanities around to defend Apple, and stop acting like it's only Apple who get caught up by authorities in stuff like this. It's not bullying, what the authorities did is protocol and I'm guessing they know more about adverts than you do.
Complete and utter fail.

hahahaha, this is great. Maybe Apple can team up with the makers of Enzyte and 'increase the size' of their products....
"What does the suit claim?
The suit claims the maker of Enzyte, Berkeley Premium Nutraceuticals (Berkeley), intentionally distributed false claims about Enzyte increasing the size of men’s genitalia. The suit also claims the company used deceptive and confusing materials to mislead customers into waiving their right to collect a refund."
What did the advertisements claim?
From Enzyte’s inception in 2001 throughout the summer of 2003, Berkeley placed Internet, radio, television and print advertisements with brazen claims about what Enzyte could accomplish, according to the suit. Some of the claims include:
* “The first all-natural male enhancement program that adds one to three inches to your size in just eight months or get double your money back”
* “100% Safe with a 98.3% Success Rate”
* “…your erectile chambers, as well as your penis, will enlarge up to 41%”
The suit states stronger claims came after customers purchased the product, including a statement from Berkeley saying, “most men report a one to three inch gain in length and 27% increase in roundness.”
Wasn’t it widely known that these types of claims were false?
No. The company’s sales prove that a substantial number of people believed the advertising claims. Berkeley posted $100 million in sales in 2003 and employs about 800 people to handle orders from customers nationwide.
What laws does the suit claim the defendants violated?
The suit claims Berkeley and other defendants violated Ohio’s consumer protection laws, as well as laws against negligent misrepresentation, unjust enrichment and fraud.
Sorry for the long post, but whats the difference in Enzyte saying it'll increase the size of your 'member' vs. Apple using a cached web page to portray high speeds?

Every company lies. They all embelish their product. I already said it once. No company is going to come out saying that their product is mediocre. No one is going to outline the flaws of their product. Maybe companies should do it, but they do. That's how the world works. If you are not used to it by now then maybe you should just shut off your TV and don't read internet ads. When you see a company who doesn't over embelish their product you let me know.
Expecting apple to act other than how they did is like expecting a parent to say that their child is mediocre. Unless you are a ****** parent, you will more than likely be extremely proud of your child and say that everything they do is great.

I hate the iPhone ads, they suck, actually most adverts these days are embarrassing. I hated it when the guy here in UK kept saying "really fast", how can the iPhone be really fast when it's 3G is limited to 1.4Mbps whilst all other phones have up to 7.2Mbps.
I'm a PC vs. I'm a Mac adverts however are brilliant, it actually makes me wanna buy a PC and not a Mac!

Wow! Does that mean I will turn into a crazy color, shadow dancer if I buy and iPod?
Uh, hello...when have commercials been completely true. Did anyone actually watch any of the political ads in the US prior to the elections? Did you take all of that posturing and politicking to be true?

People sue for everything these days. If you are not an educated enough consumer to do some research, then don't purchase the product. I'm VERY happy with my iPhone 3G. Do I live in a 3G serviced area? Yea. If I didn't, I probably would re-think my purchase decision.
Ugh stupid people...just a month ago, some lady in my area was drunk driving, and smashed her car after attempting to cross a road with a downed powerline, which was knocked down by a falling branch (recent storm). She had been using cold medicine to get over a sickness, then decided to go out to a local 'Beer Fest' event.
So, instead of owning up to the fact shes an idiot, she is suing the event organizers for letting her drink (she was 30-ish), suing PECO for not getting lights out there fast enough to warn of a downed powerline (like they can teleport?) and Comcast for not removing the branch before it fell and knocked over the powerline. She was drunk driving for god's sake!

It is slower but also you have to think about also with the 3G, it has to also do with the service provider. If they have slow internet, it will be slow.

some people are just nuts they have nothing to do so the fill lawsuits just for hobby. Gill, the guy in here, is a 70 years old dude who gets his money all from retirement pay and has nothing else to do. most of the lawsuits are filled by old retired dudes. in a sense you cant blame them but sometimes they take to the extream.

In all honesty, any of these lawsuits are hoping for one thing to occur: class-action status. Once this has been granted by a federal judge it means only one thing: money for the lawyers. As with most class-action suits, the winners are not the people who are the plaintiffs, the majority of the spoils go to the lawyers representing the plaintiffs.
12-03-2008, 05:20 PM #59Misleading ?
I don't think it's misleading.
Come on people, that kind of overstatements have been always around us.
If the Apple wanted to present REAL speed of the iPhone, they would have to waste about 10 second of the film. Why would you do that ?
For instance, there was a vehicle commercial that the car overtaking a jet. In your point of view, I'm pretty sure you have to sue this vehicle manufacture too aye ??
Tell me Mr. Cocky ?
It just reminded me of the case a old lady put her cat in microwave to dry and sue the company.

I personally think that you are naive enough to actually follow a commercial or advertisement stating that a product is soooo fast that you should believe it...
There is always some sort of interference with signal strengths and of course remember its not a computer its a phone that is amazing in its category but it will never be as fast as a computer...
I love my iPhone no matter what but I understand that even with 3G running at a max of lets say 1.4Mbps thats still ok compared to other phones...
I just think that this lawsuit will go no where...Good luck Gramps..>!!!Dont be that guy..!!!
