InformationWeek has published a "fun" article in which they take a look at the top six lamest iPhone lawsuits. Here's one of them:
1. Li v. Apple: This one takes the cake. As many of you remember, Apple dropped the price of the iPhone from $599 to $399 in early September, just two months after the initial release of the device. Many early adopters felt cheated. They considered the $200 price drop a slap in the face to loyal customers. Dongmei Li felt that slap harder than others, and filed a $1 million lawsuit against Apple for it. In her complaint she alleges, "the price reduction injured early purchasers like herself because they cannot resell the product for the same profit as those who bought the cell phone following the price cut." So in other words, she was hoping to make a quick buck by selling an iPhone oneBay (NSDQ: EBAY)? And because she couldn't do that, she felt she was entitled to $1 million? C'mon.
