Apple is a facing a class action lawsuit in California from consumers who feels that Apple's claim that "reading on the iPad is just like reading a book," is false.
Follow this link to read the complaint in PDF form. It was filed last week claiming that because the iPad overheats after prolonged use and its poor visibility in sunlight prevent it from living up to Apple's marketing promise.
From the complaint: "Indeed, according to the www.apple.com website, '[r]eading on iPad is just like reading a book.' However, contrary to this promise, using the iPad is not 'just like reading a book' at all since books do not close when the reader is enjoying them in the sunlight or in other normal environmental environments. This promise, like other portions of APPLE's marketing material for the iPad, is false."
