29 Jul Blumenthal Investigates Google Street View
Outgoing Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal has just assumed his new post in the U.S. Senate, and he decided to leave his state with a flourish ? by slapping a ?civil investigative demand? on none other than Google.
The company?s Street View service, while convenient, has long been a lightning rod for controversy, with inadvertent peers into windows and backyards triggering threats and lawsuits. Blumenthal demanded in December that Google hand over data it collected on local wireless networks, and that includes your router. There have been concerns that the company has engaged in improper collection of personal information.
Our friends in the Connecticut auto transport industry have frequently encountered Google Street View cars flickering around neighborhoods.
