Thumbs down iPhone battery subject to second lawsuit

A second class-action lawsuit argues that Apple Inc. and AT&T Inc. failed to tell early buyers of the iPhone that annual fees of more than US$100 would be needed to replace the iPhone battery and maintain service. Filed Monday in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California by Sydney Leung on behalf of a group that could reach into hundreds of thousands of iPhone users, the suit seeks more than $5 million in compensatory and punitive damages. A court conference on the matter was set for Nov. 28.

The nine-page complaint was filed on behalf of Leung by Oakland-based attorney H. Tim Hoffman, and argues that Apple and AT&T committed fraud by not fully informing customers about the costs and procedures for replacing the battery. The complaint argues that the battery “must” be replaced after 300 charges, anticipating a replacement at one year or less by a qualified technician, since the battery sits inside a sealed compartment. In its defense, however, Apple has stated on its Web site that the lithium-ion battery when properly maintained will hold up to 80 percent of its full charge at 400 charge and discharge cycles. Replacing a battery out of warranty costs $79, plus $6.95 for shipping. This whole stuff reminds me of buying a new ink printer: you often buy a dirty cheap printer, but then pay double the original price for first set of new cartridges…

I'm not a fan of the sealed ipods because of the potential battery issue, but from what I've heard, it doesn't really affect older ipods (Frequently).

On a side note. I can't stop staring at your avatar. Who is that? Did that really happen onstage somewhere?

I get PM all the times asking who she is

Margaret Nolan (aka Vicky Kennedy)

The movie is "Carry On Girls". She was a beauty contestant that sneezed because her bikini was covered in pepper.

I haven't heard of it, but by the looks of it, tell me she won and that the sabotage worked against whoever was responsible? You couldn't PRAY for that time of outcome by peppering someone's "bathing suit."

That or I'm going to carry pepper with me at the beach from now on....
