Apple has the ballsiest lawyers in the world

iphoneMy love of the iPhone has been well documented on this site, and has only grown since the invention of the iPhonesaber and the espresso maker application (Note — not a real application in any way, shape or form).

I believe the iPod and iPhone are devices of revolutionary impact on the gadgeting public. But what truly sets Apple apart, in my opinion, is the company’s gargantuan brushed metal testicles.

Consider the following argument, delivered in court to defend Apple against charges that it misled customers with TV advertisements that claimed the new 3G iPhone was “twice as fast for half the price” when compared to the original version:

“Plaintiff’s claims, and those of the purported class, are barred by the fact that the alleged deceptive statements were such that no reasonable person in Plaintiff’s position could have reasonably relied on or misunderstood Apple’s statements as claims of fact.”

In other words, no one in their right mind would believe that just because we say the device is “twice as fast for half the price,” we actually meant it was twice as fast for half the price. I mean, that’s just crazy!
