Apple faces 32 class action lawsuits for throttling iPhone CPUs without customer knowledge

Yes, Apple apologized for throttling the CPU speed on the Apple iPhone 6 and newer models. As you might know by now, this was done because the company feared that the weaker batteries on some iPhone handsets wouldn’t be able to sustain a charge while handling complex tasks. As a result, some of the affected iPhone units could shut down, forcing owners to attempt a quick re-boot.

Even though many of Apple’s customers have sipped the apple-flavored Kool Aid, there still was a backlash over the slowing of these iPhone models. It wasn’t so much the act that upset the faithful, although no one …

Law firm recruits Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL owners for Class Action suit against Google, HTC and LG

With reports that the screen on the Pixel 2 XL suffers from screen burn-in, black smear and other problems, Google could face a Class Action lawsuit filed by those Pixel 2 XL buyers who are having issues with their displays.

Verizon updates the Moto Z2 Force to support Gigabit Class LTE speeds

Owners of the Verizon version of the Moto Z2 Force should expect a notification about an update to come across the screen at any time. This is a pretty important update that will allow the device to support Big Red’s upcoming Gigabit Class LTE service. A couple of months ago, Verizon tallied a 1.07 Gbps speed in a lab using Qualcomm’s X20 LTE modem chip.  Don’t expect such a high speed from the Moto Z2 Force since the latter employs the less powerful X16 modem. And the phone won’t be used inside the perfect conditions found inside a lab.

The software version of the update is NDX26.183-15 …

Note 7 class action lawsuit dismissed, ambulance chasers planning an appeal

Back until this past April, Samsung was still offering an exchange program for its fiery Note 7 phablet, refunding those who returned their handsets, or offering replacements like the S7 edge plus some extra change. Fair and square, one would think. Needless to say, though, some folks got organized in a class action lawsuit against Samsung, claiming that its refund or replace program was not enough to compensate for the inconvenience of visiting a service center on their own dime and time. 
They were searching for a grand total of 935 million …

Class Action suit says Apple forced iPhone users to upgrade to iOS 7 to save it money

You might recall that a patent infringement suit that was originally filed by VirnetX against Apple back in 2010 reached its most recent conclusion last October with a jury ruling that Apple had to pay the plaintiff $302.4 million. As it turns out, internal Apple documents that were released as part of that trial have lead to the filing of a Class Action suit against the tech titan. Apple is charged with breaking FaceTime on purpose in 2014 for devices running iOS 6 and lower, thus avoiding payments it would have to make monthly to Akamai for relaying data.
