Remember a few years ago when Google got itself in that whole little Street-View-cars-collecting-personal-Wi-Fi-network-data debacle? Well, it looks like the case is finally being settled, and it’s not just the people who had their privacy stripped before their very eyes that are benefitting—everyone gets a piece of the pie!
