Halo v. The Man

Buried in a PR piece about classactionconnect.com, a class-action-trolling site set up by Chicago firm Blim & Ellison, is one of the more entertaining (potential) lawsuits I've ever read about:

"Among the potential targets are prescription-drug manufacturers (particularly the makers of Vioxx, Avandia, Bextra, and Fosamax), Internet dating services, health clubs, and telecommunications companies. The site is currently soliciting potential class members that have purchased 'Halo 3,' a popular new Xbox video game that allegedly renders at a lower pixel resolution than advertised."

As classactionconnect.com puts it: "These complaints are that, although Halo 3 was advertised as having a 720p resolution (720 pixels), it natively renders at 640p (640 pixels) and is simply scaled up to 720p."

This will provide someone with my very specific interests plenty of entertainment, even if it's totally maddening in the abstract.
