Two class-action lawsuits were filed against Apple this past week; one representing tens of thousands of high-tech workers, another representing owners of 27-inch iMacs with allegedly faulty screens. In the first case, other defendants in the lawsuit have already cashed out, while in the second, an angry music teacher prepares to go the distance. Will either case bring enough to court to make Apple have to open the checkbook?
Some people really have a hard time dealing with change. It seems whenever a popular software platform releases a new version, the interwebs are flooded with people whining about how much better everything was before (we’re looking at you, people on Facebook). Usually, when the next update comes around, these are the same people complaining about the changes again, and the irony there speaks for itself. With the recent release of iOS 7, the biggest change to iOS since its inception, Apple certainly opened itself up to those who love to complain about anything new or different, and the criticisms had to be expected. But was Cupertino prepared for one hater to lawyer up?
