This undated photo provided by Google shows a Google data center in Hamina, Finland. The Washington Post is reporting Wednesday, Oct. 30, 2013, that the National Security Agency has secretly broken into the main communications links that connect Yahoo and Google data centers around the world. The Post cites documents obtained from former NSA contractor Edward Snowden and interviews with officials.

Google's planned $600 million data center for Becker took a big step forward Tuesday when Minnesota utility regulators approved the tech giant's electricity contracts with Xcel Energy.

The data center, essentially a huge warehouse filled with servers, would be powered by two wind farms dedicated to Google.
