Apple Sued Over Moisture Sensor in iPhone

"Inside every iPhone is a moisture sensor: a small dot of liquid-sensitive material that turns bright pink if the iPhone's insides have been exposed to being submerged. It's the method Apple uses to protect itself from having to replace iPhones that clumsy customers have dropped in a puddle, their beer or a toilet."

The Californian woman claims in the lawsuit that "As a result of Apple's improper application of the Liquid-Damage Exclusion, Apple sells [devices] with the intent to exclude them from the warranty coverage Apple promises consumers it will provide-even when consumers pay extra for Extended Warranty coverage-simply because their Liquid Submersion Indicator has been triggered, without any attempt by Apple to verify whether the Class Devices actually have been damaged as a result of submersion or immersion in liquid." The reason for the moisture indicators is to determine if they have been exposed to moisture so isn't that verification? Not enough according to the lawsuit, it appears she also wants another verification done to make sure the indicator isn't faulty. It doesn't sound unreasonable to me, especially since there have been other complaints that these are too sensitive and could be faulty. What are your thoughts?

Jawbone Icon Headset With an iPhone Bonus

"A quick note to inform you that Aliph has just released a new version of its premium Jawbone Bluetooth headset. Besides its top of the line design and an integrated new chip that allows it to make your voice sound creepy, the Jawbone Icon comes with an interesting new feature for iPhone owners."

I wish all the headsets did this, the one thing about the Apple headset that I miss (hated the headset itself, never fit correctly). I like the "Hero" version of the Jawbone Icon, but I can't see myself wearing the gold "Bombshell" version though can you? Ok, don't answer that...
