Mac OS X lawsuit settled

A Los Angeles Superior Court judge on Monday gave final approval for a class-action settlement that will allow some Mac owners to , according to CNET News.com: "Under the terms of the deal, owners of certain older Macs can get a refund if they return their copy of Mac OS X or, if they want to keep Mac OS X, they can obtain a coupon for $25 off a $99 purchase at the Apple Store. Apple also agreed to pay $350,000 in legal costs to King & Ferlauto, the law firm that brought the suit."

    Wow

    You can get $25 dollars off of a $99+ purchase, and the lawyers get $350,000. Sounds like a victory for the mac users. Please. Another example of the raping of America.

    But wait, There's more

    And that's not including what Apple had to pay it's own lawyers for this case.

    ship & tell

    Sounds like a paltry penalty to me for the thousands of early X adopters who suffered the miserable beta quality vaporware of OS-X 10.1 & even 10.2 - without the benefit of uninstall or system restore (aka XP)

    I think slamming 'ship & tell' vendors is meager compensation for the billions of dollars in lost productivity, stress & anxiety we all suffer from as a result of poor software design & execution... There's a reason Woz was rumoured to be still using OS-9 long after X was out...

    $25 coupons means Apple will likely be getting revenues - what can one buy for $25 at the Apple store???

    USA Restart

    This country needs a fresh, clean Restart! The former middle class and working class should join together. It may be one-dollar-one-vote in Washington, but I believe it's still one-person-one-vote in the hinterlands.

    TOTAL c***

    This is simply sickening... You can't be serious that the end user basically gets a coupon for $25 on a $100 purchase. What are we going to buy? A piece of software? Perhaps a monitor or something (where the markup is way more then $25.

    I can't believe that the lawyers are the only ones that are really making out on this deal. The only individuals that get hurt here are Apple and their users. The only ones making out are the law offices of King & Ferlauto.

    This is just another example of the "don't bother being an early adopter" mentality.

    In the end, WE will be paying for this...
