    Why we need to demand a Congressional hearing on Google’s Wi-Spying

    For the last three years, Google cars and vans have been trolling the world’s cities and towns taking pictures of our houses, businesses and neighborhoods for Google Street View.

    As it turns out, the whole time, they have also been Wi-Spying. They gathered data from private WiFi networks — including, quite possibly, the one you’re using right now.

    We need your help. Sign our petition and demand that Google comes clean about the Wi-Spy scandal. Demand that Congress hold hearings immediately into the question of why Google thinks it’s OK to gather our private data and what they plan on doing with it. Google must also explain its relationship with the National Security Agency.

    Sixty-nine percent of those responding to our national poll on Internet privacy agree on the need for a hearing.

    Congress needs to act on what is potentially the biggest illegal wiretapping violation of all time. Just as BP’s CEO Tony Hayward had to testify before Congress to explain the Gulf oil spill, Google CEO Eric Schmidt must testify about the information spill the Internet giant caused.

    Google claims its Wi-Spying was a “mistake.” They claim they did nothing illegal. But they’re also spending millions of dollars to lobby Congress.

    Are those lobbying dollars stopping Congress from doing the right thing? Please sign our petition.

    Google refuses to reveal the nature of the private data they collected. Even worse, they refuse to say what they did or are planning on doing with it. Instead Google just keeps saying: Don’t worry. Trust us.

    Do you trust a company that has been secretly collecting our private data to do the right thing?

    It’s time for Google to come clean! It’s time for Congress to take action and investigate potentially the biggest wiretapping scandal of all time.

    Please sign our petition.

    ルイヴィトンは旅行の芸術なので、ルイヴィトンは比較的人気の高いブランドで、現在は手動で機械的に混合してパッケージングを行っています。 ルイヴィトンiphoneケースの海外での価格は、国民に比較的近いです。 しかし、エルメスは異なっています。馬が馬を生産するのは初めてです。そのため、エルメスは主に手作りの芸術であり、一般的な意味では贅沢ではありません。 エルメスiphoneケースのすべての製品は、芸術作品として楽しんで保存することができます。 ルイ?ヴィトンは、価格面ではルイ?ヴィトンよりもはるかに高いですが、質の面ではそれほど優れているわけではありませんが、近年では生産の増加により衰退の兆しが見えてきました。 最も顕著なパフォーマンスは、ブランド携帯ケース伝統的に手作業で加工された部品の多くが現在機械加工されていることです。加工の質は向上しますが、機械と労働は必ずしも成績ではありません。
