    Strange things can happen...!

    I think Apple wished that happened to Microsoft's products back in 1995... :D

    Pretty sensationalist headline, and currently not true.

    Motorola have been granted an injunction, but a sales ban is currently unenforceable due to an earlier court decision in the US (yes, restricting Motorola's rights in another jurisdiction). German customers will have no problem buying an Xbox for the time being.

    Thanks for the clarification!
    A bunch of writers on my Twitter feed are currently going mad at it. I guess they're fuelling the machine.
