about any previous agreement. Have you read the lawsuit? It's only 16 pages. I have... of course, I get paid to read these things.
You guys can sit here and worship Apple till the cows come home, but Tiger Direct has excellent legal standing if this is the primary basis for the lawsuit. Apple agreed to something before, and now they are breaking their agreement.
Well, since it is not mentioned anywhere in the lawsuit, let us assume that it would be fair to say that it is not the basis for their lawsuit.
Furthermore the reason this coming out today, is you cannot sue based on a preview image of a product say from Amazon. You can only sue once that product is offically released and on sale, which is why this lawsuit comes out today the release of 10.4 (coincidentally, the release of Windows XP 64 bit as well)
I hate cleaning up after people who don't know what they are talking about. The lawsuit was filed in Federal Court in Florida yesterday. Not today. Furthermore, since the complaint is with the marketing strategy (which you would know if you had read the complaint) it should have been filed long ago if they really have any other intention than extortion.
If Apple broke the agreement, then they are in the wrong, this isn't a fishing lawsuit, it's a breach of agreement, and I personally think Tiger Direct will win.
While I disagree with your perspective of the facts, you are entitled to personally think whatever you wish. I would suggest though, that you are in fact incorrect, and that Apple will win.
