Users and resellers have filed class actions lawsuits against Apple computer for, well, being SOBs.
Consumers accuse Apple of selling them old computers while claiming that they were new. They also claim that the company cheated them out of their warranty by starting the countdown on the day the manufacturer ships the unit to the reseller instead of the purchase day.
Resellers meanwhile believe Apple stole their customer contact data and to send them marketing messages about the company's own retail store. They also say the vendor charged them parts that were used to repair units while within the official warranty period – getting this problem corrected would take several days.
Apple might be the underdog in the battle over the desktop computer (currently in the number 3 spot behind Linux and Windows), if proven guilty, the company deserves no sympathy for how it behaved.
Yet somehow we've seen this happen all before. That's just sad.
