    Apple is no stranger to the lawsuit front, having already encountered troubles over the iPhone name with Cisco, for example. However, this has to be one of the most interesting lawsuits that we have seen in quite some time.

    William Gillis is an AT&T customer who is very unhappy with the performance on his iPhone 3G. Rather than sue AT&T and Apple for providing less than stellar service, the lawsuit that Gillis is launching charges the two companies with consciously overselling the iPhone 3G to the public, overwhelming the system, and, as a result, making for some severe underperformance.

    In his 18-page filing, Gillis points out the 3G tower power issue that recently leaked to the public in which an AT&T worker disclosed that current sub-par connections are caused by iPhones sucking too much power for AT&T transmitters to maintain proper 3G signals. Given this knowledge, Gillis feels the iPhone was clearly sold past network capacity creating problems that cascaded to every AT&T 3G users.

    I think the real problem is they didn't update their network efficiently and timely. They knew(or should have anticipated) they'd sell a lot but failed to update their network, probably "hoping" a performance slowdown wouldn't happen. BTW, I lost iPhone call service for one night yesterday. Other AT&T phones worked fine.

    He should amend his lawsuit. It's not negligence to sell a lot of phones, but not to update their network when they should have known the 3G iPhone would be popular can be considered negligence to ALL users who suffered outages due to network slowdown.
    HP has officially ruined it's own platform and kicked webOS loyalists and early TouchPad adopters to the curb. You think after you drop it like a hot potato and mention it made no money and is costing you money, anyone else wants it??? Way to go HP!!

    And some people are fools to keep believing their hype. HP has shown they will throw webOS under the bus and people are still having faith in them??? News flash: if it's own company won't stand behind it, it's finished!
