imac-monitor.jpgA man is suing Apple for claiming in its advertising that iMac monitors can display a million colours. Well, he counted them and gosh darn it, they don’t!

An Associated Press story says, “Users are fooled into seeing many more colours because the monitors use technological tricks that involve showing many similar shades at high speeds to create the illusion of the desired shade, according to the lawsuit.”

Silly Apple, tricks are for kids. Monitors are for adults. Then again, we’re talking about Macs here, so maybe they really are for kids.

The lawsuit says that, because of all this IT razzle-dazzle, the monitors only show 262,144 “true colours.” Cyndi Lauper did not return calls from Shark Tales for comment at press time.
