Here’s a a round up of some of the top stories from the San Jose Mercury News technology this past week:
- The big story this week was the shocking verdict in the Apple-Samsung trial. Court report Howard Mintz led the way with gavel-to-gavel coverage. But there’s lots of other meaty stuff. It can all be found here on a special section for the trial.
- Pete Carey had a fascinating read this week looking at the Santa Clara County tax rolls and what it told us about which companies where growing fastest in Silicon Valley. No surprise, Google is at the top of that list. But read the story here to see who else is booming.
- Last weekend, cloud gaming company OnLive mysteriously announced it had avoided bankruptcy by reorganizing under an obscure California law. Troy Wolverton had full coverage of what happened and what it meant.
- Pat May had a nice look back at Tim Cook’s first year as CEO. Record stock price served as timely birthday present.
- Offbeat story of the week comes from Dana Hull, who found that all those unused glass tubes left behind when Solyndra filed for bankruptcy had been turned into a sculpture in Berkeley. Republicans were not amused.
