I find it funny that people are bitching about the fact that Google have collected ‘Private’ data from peoples Wireless networks.
In an article over the the New Zealand Herald website Google sorry for collecting data Google is apologizing for collecting information from open/unsecured wireless networks.
If you are really that concerned about your bloody privacy, at least take the intuitive to protect your data by securing your network with a password. How many of you bitching about Google having ‘your data’ actually realize that if Google have it, who else does. More to the point, what are those other people doing with it.
If you’re stupid enough to run an open wifi network and transmit your private lives over it, what do you expect. Not everyone is a model citizen and there are many who will steal your stuff. It’s a fact of life. Get over it. Do you go to the supermarket and leave your car unlocked with the keys in the ignition.
Come on, Common sense is not that difficult surely.
