So various governments around the world remain furious with Google for its accidental Street View wifi data collection. However, at the same time, governments are also getting annoyed and using filters to block government employees from using Google products because Google is now increasingly running more and more of its apps (including search and Gmail) via SSL, making it harder for those gov't agencies to spy on what users are doing.
