I will cheerfully join those who bemoan Incredibill's lack of diplomatic finesse, but I agree with his basic point that there is no reasonable claim of privacy when one is scattering things that one "owns" around public space, unencrypted.
Unsecured wi-fi is a broadcast medium.
The Google vehicles were travelling on public ground as they passed through all those little broadcast areas.
This is going to be an interesting case to watch.
