Google's Alan Eustace, Senior VP, Engineering & Research yesterday on the official Google Blog (way down at the end of the post) about the collecting of unencrypted WiFi payload data via Street View cars.

"...a number of external regulators have inspected the data as part of their investigations (seven of which have now been concluded). Itís clear from those inspections that while most of the data is fragmentary, in some instances entire emails and URLs were captured, as well as passwords."
