It’s a slow news day (aside from the obligatory new iPhone rumor), so I’ll use this space to direct your attention to this great write-up from my colleague Tom Krazit on the first week of the patent trial between Google and Oracle. Oracle claims Google improperly used Java technology rather than obtain a license to build Android, while Google has countered that it didn’t need a license for the technology in question. Expect to see plenty of headlines as this showdown continues for the next seven weeks or so — or until the two sides settle.
