bonch writes “Attorneys General from 37 states have joined the probe into Google’s Street View data collection. The investigation seeks more information behind Google’s software testing and data archiving practices after it was discovered that their Street View vans scanned private WLANs and recorded users’ MAC addresses. Attorney general Richard Blumenthal said, ‘Google’s responses continue to generate more questions than they answer. Now the question is how it may have used — and secured — all this private information.’”
