The Privacy Commissioner, Karen Curtis, has completed her investigation into Google's Wi-Fi spying bungle and found the company breached the Privacy Act.
Authorities all over the world are investigating Google, including the Australian privacy watchdog and Australian Federal Police, for sucking up 600GB of "payload data" from unsecured wireless networks over several years while taking pictures for its Street View mapping service.
"Google has also today published an apology<http://google-au.blogspot.com/2010/07/were-sorry.html> on its official blog."
