well im SO glad that it was just all a big mistake... i mean its so easy to collect wifi data by mistake.... its not like you need a wifi scanner to find the open wifi's in the first place. An im sure that the largest internet conglomerate of information wouldn't want that useless, mapped information of every wifi network throughout US,AU,UK etc.... PAH-lease... its main purpose is a P-H-O-T-O car... and now they say they mistakenly gathered wifi data too? gimme a break.... and im sure they have the entire world mapped out as well.... its not like the first time they did it (Germany & Aust) they just happened to get caught... i like google and use it like everyone else does... but their thirst for data/information is starting to get outta hand, it seems.

They're all favorable. Fucking Slashvertisements.

Maybe they can suck or straddle Yankee's Doodle.

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone on this site is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

lol.... Billy Madison ref FTW

From the Article:

DePetrillo said. "We created software that iterates through these numbers and can crawl the entire phone database in the U.S. within a couple of weeks... We have done whole cities and pulled thousands of records." "It's not illegal, nor is it a breach of terms of service," Bailey said.

How is this not illegal? its not an open DB that anyone can browse at freewill. You would need a way to hack/social-engineer the servers in order to get into it. I highly doubt that Verizon/ATT/etc have their entire customer DB's open for anyone to peruse with a data-miner. I'm sure the telco's aren't too happy bout this news.... and i bet they would pay high $$ to see them/this disappear. :)
