Submission + - Google Says Mistakenly Collected Data on Web Usage (wsj.com)

newviewmedia.com writes: Google Inc. said it would stop collecting Wi-Fi network data from its StreetView cars, after an internal investigation it conducted found it was accidentally collecting data about websites people were visiting over the hotspots.

"It's now clear that we have been mistakenly collecting samples of payload data from open [i.e. non-password-protected] Wi-Fi networks, even though we never used that data in any Google products," (WSJ article)
