Google announced that it is inviting developers to try out the beta version of its Real Time Reporting API, a tool that allows you to programmatically make queries on your website data and use that information in whatever way you please.

One mashup has just been created using Kwwika and Superfeedr to demonstrate how two real-time platforms can be integrated to create a real-time news reader application.
PubNub this week announced a partnership with IBM through which its software will be integrated with the Bluemix cloud integration platform. This partnership, along with PubNub's recent announcement of an SDK for the Internet of Things, shows the company's increased emphasis on IoT.
