The Federal Communications Commission this weekend alleged that Google "deliberately impeded and delayed" an FCC investigation into the way the search giant collected data from non-password protected Wi-Fi networks in the United States and abroad for its Street View project.


Known as "payload data," the Internet communications Google was able to capture from unprotected Wi-Fi networks is thought to include "email and text messages, passwords, Internet usage history, and other highly sensitive personal information," according to the FCC.


Perhaps another camera glitch like Google claimed in Europe. *rolls eyes*
