Wednesday technews roundup – 07/05/14

It’s been a while since I did one of these!

But now I’m back with some lovely fresh news for all of you who look to WordPress (and me) for what’s going on in tech.

I’ll hopefully be doing these every Wednesday to keep everyone informed, since it seems to be when the news really peaks for us in the office.

So, without further ado, here we go!

HP have announced their new Helion portfolio, offering enterprise customers an open source solution to their cloud management whilst also protecting them from indemnity.

On the weirder side of cloud, spreadsheets hosted in it are being used to track Mexican immigrants and pregnant goats.

Google has caused a bit of a stir as emails have emerged detailing that they may have been a bit more friendly with the NSA than they claimed.

As always, here’s the lot, below:
