Siri how can I sue Job's Mob?

Apple taken to court

A US bloke is suing Apple for making all sorts of claims about its voice search machine Siri, which it could not deliver.

Apple made all sorts of claims about Siri, which was about the only thing new in its iPhone 4S. Frank Fazio filed a federal class action lawsuit against Apple saying Siri commercials are “fundamentally and designedly false and misleading.

Judging by the commercials, Apple’s iPhone Speech Interpretation and Recognition Interface (Siri) is meant to be taken seriously. John Malkovich is in one commercial, lounging in a living room asking Siri for Linguica. Siri tells him there are five restaurants close to him that serve it.

However Fazio said that he asked Siri for directions to a certain place, or to locate a store. Siri either did not understand what he was asking or after a very long wait time responded with the wrong answer.
