    Apple is included because it was their responsibility to know that a plan by AT&T was in the works that voided all of the advertised 3G availability that they promised. No competent manufacturer would advertise a feature that they could not guarantee to be in place for a reasonable amount of time (no matter what was included in the fine print which no one ever reads). 1 to 2 months is not a reasonable amount of time no matter who is making the determination.

    It is irrelevant if 96% of 3G users are not really adversely affected by the change.

    Apple is being sued because some lawyer thinks he can get a few bucks for a few clients and millions in legal fees.

    I would suspect that AT&T and Apple had deal in place where after 'X' many iPads sold, they would pull this off. Neither Apple or AT&T, probably did not expect to reach this plateau this soon and maybe expected this after a year or so. Apple did not project to sell 2-million iPads in two months. I dont support the idea of this lawsuit but Apple is a much responsible as AT&T, think about it, they are partners. I dont think the lawsuit will go anywhere, just another puke lawyer trying to cash in on couple billion dollar companies.

    Apple is being sued because technically Apple lied. They did the iPad keynote stating the 3G plans.....a week after the device came out and people shelled out cash for it they changed the plans...that is bait and switch....doesn't matter if its all AT&Ts fault...if thats the case apple needs to finally stop doing business with them...but they are responsible for their product!

    Lol, oh how true it is. Capt Kirk was on the mark too with his comment.

    I don't like the change any better than anyone else. But when dealing with companies like the big mobile carriers, things like this are to be expected until some things are changed majorly. I don't believe based on what Ive seen so far, that this was a big conspiracy among Steve and his cohorts, Although I could be wrong. Being the business genius that he is, I think if it was a decision he made, he would have handled things a lil better to not have such a negative effect on apple public opinion.

    I don't think it's a conspiracy, but Apple is responsible for who they do business with.
