Sorry, very little of any of that.
Simple = My Mom could do it. (Read English, Yes.)
There's no way she could do what you're talking about.
criminals do it all the time
Couldn't have said it better myself.
Google did far less, the whole thing is idiotic.
You're right, they shouldn't have gone there.
I'm not sure why people are arguing in favor of flawed insecure wifi technology because no matter how many arguments you make or laws you pass because...
Uh, just arguing it's not right to exploit it, even for 'Good Ol' Don't Be Evil Google'.
IMO, Germany got it right when the German count ruled open wifi effectively illegal.
But not when they went after Google for doing it?
Data protection authorities in Spain and Germany have also asked Google for access to Wi-Fi traffic data intercepted in their countries...
Like I said before, pointless.
Anyone here ever had your CC Info stolen when your card has been in your possession the entire time and woken up one day to find your bank account cleaned out? I have... Wait until you get to the store someday and have your card declined when there was a good 4 figures in your account yesterday and start wondering what happened only to go to the bank and see a transaction for $973 at a grocery store you've never been in before.
Yeah, I'm sure there are those here who think it's my fault someone installed a scanner somewhere and duplicated my card without my knowledge, because I didn't take every single precaution when using it, but the bank didn't seem to think so when they credited my account with every dime that was taken...
Criminals do what happened to me all the time too incrediBILL, does that mean it would be okay for Google to do, just to build a better application or do something else with the information? Credit Card security won't get any better until they require some type of personal verification for use, but I'm sure it's tough to figure out how to send a fingerprint online, so we should probably scrap those and start over too, right?
