Microsoft getting allies
Apple has joined the long list of companies that opposes Motorola's request to ban imports of Xbox 360s to the US
You may remember when we post the Motorola's ban request of all the Xbox 360's in the US for patent infrigement.
Since that thay, a growing number of companies have been backing up, Microsoft to reject the ban. The last one to join its circle of allies was Apple.
According to ArsTechnica:

More testimonials on the Xbox's behalf came from Activision, Nokia, HP, Cisco, and Intel, all saying the public interest outweighs the concerns of Motorola.
