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.

Freely admitted? As in told everyone they were going to listen/look into whatever I was doing on the interwebs at the time that stupid van went past, like Before they actually did it?

I don't remember them telling me, maybe that was another slight oversight, similar to the one where they take and store how many meg/gig/tetrabytes? Of information. Like on accident.


But seriously it was nice of them to tell us, Im sure had the german authorities not have asked for the data they would have told us anyway/
