Big Corporations Do Not Run The World

Apple have been taken to court here in Australia, do they think that we are some backwoods country who doesn't have 21st century telecommunications!!

Apple Offers iPad Refunds

They need to look at their advertising or use of words very carefully and realise that not every country conforms to what is available in the US.

    1. This is what Apple agreed to...

      "Apple has agreed to provide signage to all resellers by 5pm on April 5, with the phrase: ''This product supports very fast cellular networks. It is not compatible with current Australian 4G LTE networks or WiMax networks''.

      Colin Golvan, SC, acting for the ACCC, argued for a single sentence without any reference to the iPad's capabilities.

      However, Apple argued that consumers may think the device would not work on any mobile broadband networks and the ACCC's proposal was ''disparaging of its very good product''.

  2. Eek - you're right!

    Hope they will refund all the misled consumers.
