In an interesting lawsuit where you've just got to root for the underdog, a California law firm is organizing a class-action lawsuit against Verizon in regards to their crippling the Bluetooth feature on the wildly popular Motorola V710 cell phone. According to the Wall Street Journal:

"The lawsuit contends that the term Bluetooth represents certain features, so to say that a cellphone has Bluetooth but then deliver only some of its features is misleading. Verizon Wireless's Web site touts the Bluetooth functions on the V710 model by saying "you can make hands-free, eyes-free calls, and connect to your PC or PDA whenever and wherever you want."
