I don't understand what the upset or finger pointing is about. So Google was air sniffing to find open wifi networks to make a world map of public wifi networks. In order to determine that - you have to grab some packets to see if it is an open public network ready for login, or a private network. Ummm, So What? A think it was a brillant idea.
Google, should fire back and put up a list of all the mac addresses they found that were using open wifi.
There is zero private data of any value Google could use in any positive or negative way.
Google used to get lots of good press for doing next to nothing - now they are getting lots of bad press for doing next to nothing.
