Google has taken advantage of stupid people, and I think the courts will decide it was wrong.
Actually, Google has forced stupid people to smarten up and they probably don't even know it.
If you use Gmail as your email it's in HTTPS, totally secure over wifi, not a problem.
If you use Google Docs it uses HTTPS as well, not a problem.
Overall, Google has done quite a bit to make sure their products are safe on wifi.
Yahoo mail on the other hand, not so much.
When you get robbed or one of your friends and family get robbed/defrauded, I'm going to clap my hands with you and rejoice by saying your philosophy: you get what you deserve.
That's just mean spirited, nothing about insecure technology.
But following the metaphor, there is no robbery in open wifi, your friends and family walk down the street tossing money around for anyone to grab.
