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.

Google is indeed quite dangerous. But the worst is that when you look at what's in front of them, you're still tempted to choose them.

It's a next-generation dictatorship. Instead of basically acting in the old "we only care about our benefits, our customers are just something that we happen to need for that" way, like Microsoft and Apple, Google use a more subtle approach...
