And that the 30 states involved more than likely wasted more than $7 million of taxpayer money over this idiotic lawsuit.

Senate - get off your butts and actually create a budget that has spending cuts 3x the amount of tax increases like you promised.

what is really scary too is that the government wanted to see the data. Rather than simply telling Google to delete it and provide proof to a court officer.

It is pretty clear they wanted data for their storehouse that will open in Utah.

Yeah. And that's it's even illegal to passively collect something that someone else broadcast with no encryption. It's a severe violation of common sense that there's a darn thing illegal about this. Maybe creepy, but it shouldn't be illegal. If you want to protect your stuff, encrypt it. If you don't encrypt it, you have forfeited your right to care who sees it unless you have an AP several hundred yards from any edge of your property.
