"Google's roving Street View spycam may blur your face, but it's
got your number. The Street View service is under fire in Germany
for scanning private WLAN networks, and recording users' unique Mac
(Media Access Control) addresses, as the car trundles along.
"Germany's Federal Commissioner for Data Protection Peter Schaar
says he's "horrified" by the discovery. "I am appalled… I
call upon Google to delete previously unlawfully collected personal
data on the wireless network immediately and stop the rides for
Street View," according to German broadcaster ARD."
