Apple Sued Over Misleading And Deceptive Siri Advertisement

Despite its massive popularity, the digital assistant featured in the latest iPhone has also brought trouble to its owners.

Apparently not everybody loves Siri, as a New Yorker recently revealed when he filed a lawsuit against Apple.

Frank M. Fazio accused the iPhone maker of false advertising, when it comes to the functionality of the voice-activated assistant.

All of the tasks that are shown in Apple's TV ads featuring Siri, including making appointments, learning how to play guitar or how to tie a tie "are done with ease with the assistance of the iPhone 4S's Siri feature; a represented functionality contrary to the actual operating results and performance of Siri," says Frank Fazio.

The original file of the class action lawsuit has five claims related to the violation of the consumers' legal remedies, violation of the unfair competition law, breach of express warranty, international misrepresentation and negligent misrepresentation.

The plaintiff demanded a jury trial and asked for damages, but so far the inquisitive reporters that originally discovered the story haven't found out the amount of money that Apple should pay, in the event the company loses the trial.
