Watchdog Group questions Google's relationship with NSA...

Google is in hot water again -- or it will be if Consumer Watchdog can persuade the public to ask Congress to take action over the Google "Wi-Spy scandal." Additionally, Consumer Watchdog published a report, Lost in the Cloud: Google and the US Government [PDF], that highlights Google's relationship with NSA and claims the search giant has also "inappropriately benefited" from close and secretive relationships with other government agencies.


While I'd like to see Schmidt answers questions under oath about Wi-Fi information collected by Google Street View, I also hope Consumer Watchdog keeps an eye on the privacy practices of Microsoft, Facebook and other companies that handle mass amounts of consumer data. Full story...
