Apple gets sued for delivering HD video to older Apple iPhone models

Apple has been sued in San Francisco by an attorney in Florida named Scott Weiselberg, who says that he was tricked into spending a $1 more to rent an HD version of "Big Daddy" even though his version of the Apple iPhone doesn't support HD movies; even though the first three versions of the Apple iPhone and Apple iPod touch do not support HD video, Apple made HD the default option when it launched iTunes 8.0 in 2010...

Apple getting sued? You're doing it wrong. Usually its Apple who sues.

If you buy a video (or whatever) on iTunes, you can watch it on any Apple device or computer you might have, right? So why shouldn't they offer a movie in HD just because you're buying it on an old iPhone? Maybe you've got a iPad 3 or 4, or a computer. Maybe you don't want to buy BOTH the regular AND the HD version. Or maybe you're an idiot, and you buy the HD version even though you have no HD devices. In which case, it's Apple's fault, and you file a lawsuit.
