Is the iPhone Actionably Slow?

IPhonesA New Jersey man is suing Apple, claiming that its network speed is not all it was advertised to be, according to this article in PC World. Plaintiff alleges breach of contract, among other things, because he claims that the service is unreliable, as he is unable to stay connected to the 3G network from his iPhone. In addition, he alleges that Apple misrepresented its network's "speed, strength, and performance."  This is just the latest in a string of lawsuits that the company has faced over the network issues related to the otherwise stupendous iPhone.  

I don't see the need for lawsuits when parody is such an obvious alternative.  For example, a collection of the allegedly misleading real iPhone ads can be found here.*  A parody illustrating real speed can be found here.  Parodies illustrating the bizarre apps proliferation can be found here
and here.

able to figure our how to embed videos on the new system.
