Hot on the heels of the potential UK probe [webmasterworld.com], it seems Australia is reconsidering an investigation into Google's Street View.

Australia's Regulator Considers Reopening Street View Case [news.com.au]

AUSTRALIA'S Privacy Commissioner could launch a second investigation into Google's collection of personal information after a report found the internet giant was warned its Street View cars were harvesting everything from text message to internet passwords.
The details emerged in a US Federal Communications Commission report that found the company's Street View cars not only photographed streets but recorded wi-fi network details, as well as "names, addresses, telephone numbers, URLs, passwords, email, text messages, medical records, video and audio files".

Google apologised for the collection in 2010, saying "we want to reiterate to Australians that this was a mistake for which we are sincerely sorry".
