"Why was Google collecting Wi-Fi data in the first place?
Google says it was collecting basic Wi-Fi data from network routers including Service Set Identifier (SSID) information and Media Access Control (MAC) addresses. The search giant says collecting this information from data access points across the world helps the company improve the accuracy of its location-based products like Google Maps for mobile, My Location, and Buzz."
