Google's Wi-fi Problem

Friday, August 12, 2011


Google was the subject of an international public relations nightmare when the public learned that the cars Google uses to take pictures for their Google Street View service were also picking up information over unsecured wireless networks as they drove by. Now, a US District Judge has said that Google can be sued for violating the wiretap act. Ars Technica senior editor Nate Anderson talks to Bob about the potential ramifications of this lawsuit.

I feel Google has taken many risk to have a successful company, and it has really taken a toll on them. This has to be like the 5th lawsuit Google is being slapped with due to a simple risk making a big mess. Maybe that just want it is to being a good company. Taking risk, and getting lawsuits.
