Google's Wi-Fi snooping lessons

The man at the centre of the Google Street View scandal has been publicly unmasked but is it fair to scapegoat him for the privacy debacle?

The New York Times claims to have uncovered the identity of the Google software engineer who wrote the code used by Street View cars when they controversially scooped up private Wi-Fi data including emails, text messages, browsing histories and passwords.

According to the newspaper, Marius Milner of Palo Alto, California is "Engineer Doe" - the coder named only pseudonymously in an official FCC report that revealed Google staff knew for years about the Street View data breach.
