Blockchain leads British investment, HP’s breaking bad, and more in your Week in Tech

Blockchain led a big week of British investments, raising $30m. International relocation platform MOVE Guides snapped up $8m and career matchmakers 10 Minutes With also raised $4m.

HP decided breaking up was best as it split its consumer and business divisions and the new Amazon Fire Phone struggled to impress on its UK launch.

All this and more in your Week in Tech.
