iPhone lawsuit doesn't stand a chance

An iPhone customer who's not happy that the battery isn't user-replacable has filed a class-action lawsuit against Apple.

An iPhone customer who's not happy that the battery isn't user-replaceable has filed a class-action lawsuit against Apple.

The lawsuit, filed by Jose Trujillo, claims that:

Unknown to the Plaintiff, and undisclosed to the public, prior to purchase, the iPhone is a sealed unit with its battery soldered on the inside of the device so that it cannot be changed by the owner.

I'm trying this figure out how he managed to avoid all the iPhone coverage in the press and media.  I'm pretty sure that there's bacteria on Mars that know the iPhone's battery isn't user-replaceable.

The lawsuit also contains some serious inaccuracies:

The battery enclosed in the iPhone can only be charged approximately 300 times before it will be in need of replacement, necessitating a new battery annually for owners of the iPhone.

According to Apple, the iPhone's battery will retain  80% capacity after 400 charge cycles.

I give this lawsuit about the same chance and an ice cube in hell.
