Microsoft and Apple, already strange bedfellows if we're to believe Apple's seriously considering Bing over Google on future iPhones, are at it again, albeit indirectly. This time it's Microsoft's turn, as they present counterarguments in an Xbox 360 antitrust case.
Psystar, insane and actively prosecuted manufacturer of Mac clones and the occasional t-shirt, has filed an appeal of an injunction won by Apple exactly one month ago. This will, of course, achieve nothing, other than dragging out Psystar's ridiculous and unsupportable case for several more months, and sustaining its…

There are no details to be had yet, but apparently Psystar has filed paperwork with a San Francisco court revealing that the company has reached a "partial settlement" with Apple. More details should go public later today. [AppleInsider]
Psystar's recent legal woes keep proving the company's insanity. New documents show that these guys planned to sell at least 1.45 million Mac clones by 2011. How many did they actually sell in the past year? 768.

In case you missed it, Psystar's new downloadable software lets you install OS X on any PC with a Core 2 Duo, Quad, i7 or Xeon Nehalem processor. CrunchGear tried it on an HP TouchSmart, and even the touchscreen worked.
