aren't they banned in the US, though? And, if so, would this ruling possibly affect any US litigation?

It is a temporary injunction. So the time being yeah it is banned from being imported. Whatever a UK court decides makes no difference in the U.S. When has it ever?

I have nothing but unkind things to say about Apple. Hell I prefer Microsoft and would recommend them before Apple and that's pretty pathetic.
