Apple has filed a motion to dismiss in a situation filed by customers over alleged deceptive advertising depicting the Siri technology in the iPhone 4S. The lawsuit, submitted in March, alleges that Apple’s advertising and marketing of Siri doesn’t mirror true-earth utilization. When asked for instructions or to identify a store, “Siri both did not understand what Plaintiff was inquiring, or, immediately after a really lengthy wait time, responded with the wrong solution.”
In a motion to dismiss (by way of Scribd), Apple attempts to shoot down the Plaintiff’s arguments, reports the Wall Avenue Journal:
They offer you only basic descriptions of Apple’s ads, incomplete summaries of Apple’s internet site supplies, and obscure descriptions of their alleged—and highly individualized—disappointment with Siri. Tellingly, although Plaintiffs claim they became dissatisfied with Siri’s performance “soon after” getting their iPhones, they manufactured no try to avail themselves of Apple’s 30-day return policy or one-yr warranty—which continues to be in impact. Rather, they seek to get an alleged private grievance about the purported efficiency of a well-known item and flip it into a nationwide class action under California’s customer security statutes. The Complaint does not occur shut to meeting the weighty load necessary to maintain these kinds of statements.
Apple proceeds to heavily market Siri and the iPhone 4S. The two newest ads for the solution feature celebrities Samuel L. Jackson and Zooey Deschanel using Siri to prepare date night and to get tomato soup sent.
