BBC News - Google admits wi-fi data collection blunder

BBC News - Google admits wi-fi data collection blunder: "Google has admitted that for the past three years it has wrongly collected information people have sent over unencrypted wi-fi networks.

The issue came to light after German authorities asked to audit the data the company's Street View cars gathered as they took photos viewed on Google maps.

Google said during a review it found it had 'been mistakenly collecting samples of payload data from open networks'.

The admission will increase concerns about potential privacy breaches."

With recent privacy problems with Facebook, Apple trying to drive Flash off the web, and now this, what did any person every have against Microsoft?
