Microsoft Is Being Sued Over The Space (Or Lack Thereof) On The Surface RT

So it’s a bit odd that the 32GB Surface actually only turns up with 16GB of space, because Windows RT takes up half of it, but suing Microsoft? Really? Why don’t you just stick an SD in there and call it a day? What’s wrong with you?

A lawyer, from California, took offence to the fact that he quickly filled up his 32GB Surface because of the limited space. Despite Microsoft actually stating the free space in the fine print on its site, Andrew Sokolowski insists that he’s been swindled, and not only wants Microsoft to change its adverts, but damages as well.

Oh, what a litigation-happy world we live in. This is yet another reason why we can’t have nice things. [AP]
