This is hilarious when you consider that Google was recently caught indexing your MAC address and combining it with your physical address while doing their Google Street View invasions of privacy.
|The Street View service is under fire in Germany for scanning private WLAN networks, and recording users' unique Mac (Media Access Control) addresses, as the car trundles along. |
