#7 Lawyer hate his new Microsoft Surface and said the company cheated

A California lawyer is so upset with his Surface tablet, that he's suing Microsoft for alleged false advertising, reports Business Insider.

Andrew Sokolowski, when he began to load his tablet with music and Word documents, claimed that the advertised 32 gigabytes of storage actually was 16 GB of free space. So he knocked on Los Angeles Superior Court for justice. 

However Microsoft warns of this issue on its website, stating, "The 32 GB version has approximately 16 GB free hard disk space, as some of the disk space been used by built-in apps and by the Windows features that can help you protect and recover the stuff you store on your Surface."

But Sokolowski's lawyer was a no quitter, and said that this information is "buried" on the site and that "they make you search and dig for it specifically, or you would never find it."
