Woman Sues Apple for 1 Million Dollars Over "Unfair" iPhone Price Cut, Repeal of Nerd Tax


Who can put a price on pain and suffering? Your attorney can, of course... to the total sum of a cool 1 Million dollars. Dongmei Li of Queens, New York (I didn't know people living in Queens could afford iPhones) claims that Apple's dramatic iPhone price cut is a flagrant violation of consumer price discrimination laws. Her suit alleges that the price cut hurts early adopters by deflating the iPhone's resale value. I call that the price of early adoption, but apparently it is grounds for litigation. Who knew?

So let me get this straight... if I walk into Wal-Mart and buy a head of lettuce, which then subsequently drops in price by 20 cents after I leave the store, I can then sue Wal-Mart for damages? Hot damn! I'm going to start watching for those falling prices and little yellow smiley faces.

On behalf of all Queens residents with iPhones... That stings.
But not as bad as the Mets.

By far The most Ignorant statement I've read online in a long time. I suggest you do research on Queens, which by far contains the most diverse of cultures in the world.
As a resident of Queens I own an iPhone, and am outraged at that statement. Stop remembering Queens as the neighborhood from "Coming to America". I demand an apology for all Queens residents!
But I do agree sueing over a price drop is a bit excessive.
