Texting-while-drivingA new class action suit, filed by Julio Ceja of Costa Mesa, California, is attempting to force Apple to implement technology into their phones that prevents texting while driving. The suit claims that this technology has been around for years, and Apple's failure to implement is resulting in lives lost. Ok, now we see these kind of frivolous suits against Apple and major corporations all the time, but this one is annoying enough that we thought we should address it. 

The (flawed) logic behind this suit, and many other suits that face Apple, is that the company is at fault for the mistakes of the consumer. That's false, and that is precisely why we have an issue with all of these suits against Apple (a similar suit was also filed recently). If you hit someone while texting and driving, how, in any way, is that Apple's fault? Let Apple make their iPhones how they want. Purchasing an iPhone doesn't force you to text and drive, it's a decision you make. Just like purchasing a gun doesn't force you to go murder someone.

We don't really get it. If any of you can shed some light on how crazy suits like these make any sense, feel free to let us know in

    If the judicial system rules against Apple, perhaps they should consider ruling against weapons manufacturers for the same reasoning. After all, the technology to allow fingerprint technology to allow someone to fire a gun has been around for quite a while, also. #
