You're A Judge, Not A Computer Repairman

It's cool, I understand that old people have trouble understanding new technology (*cough* Senator Grassley *cough*). But when it's your job to understand and make BINDING LEGAL RULINGS on technology, you have to at least know the difference between iOS and Windows 7.

Looks like Northern Calfornia district judge James Ware doesn't. In NVIDIA's class-action settlement (in which owners of Apple, HP and Dell notebook running NVIDIA graphics hardware had malfunctioned), he just ruled that replacing faulty MacBook Pros running GeForce 8400M and 8600M graphics cards with sub-$US500, entry-level Compaq CQ-56's would be acceptable which, of course, it isn't. They run on entirely different operating systems. [via Electronista]
