    Funny things #2 and #3
    2) How does one "mistakenly" collect private wireless data?

    3) And i understand the 360-degree cameras and probably collecting geo-positioning data as well, but why would they be collecting all wireless data?

    Even if they were using a wireless camera still doesn't explain it :confused:

    Time for people to focus on the real issue here. The general lack of security on so many wireless networks. Secure your networks people! Or else prepare for disaster...no excuses.

    That is one issue as well, but the real point is a corporation with lots of resources at its disposal is 'exploiting' the shortcomings instead of being open and more forthcoming about the issue so it could be resolved.
