Google This issue kind of fell by the wayside in all the WebM and Android violence, but apart from the cool things Google did this past week, they've also done something really bad. They claim it's a mistake, but the company has collected 600GB of data from open personal wireless networks in 33 countries through its Street View cars, prompting several countries to initiate official investigations into the search giant.

what data? name of wireless network? and geolocation of said network? is that the extent of the data? what else could they collect while driving slowly past it? not much else. so really who cares about this?
