UK Gov't Review Says Google WiFi Sniffing Didn't Sniff Anything Significant

But, of course, lots of governments are "investigating." I fully expect some less-technically savvy government groups to get confused about this and still condemn Google, but the UK's investigation has found that Google did not collect sensitive data:
The ICO said in a statement: "On the basis of the samples we saw, we are satisfied so far that it is unlikely that Google will have captured significant amounts of personal data."
It added: "There is also no evidence - as yet - that the data captured by Google has caused or could cause any individual detriment."
