So let me get this straight. Google drives around, sniffs out data packets from WiFi routers, publishes the information, and then says that in order for you to "opt out", you have to CHANGE your SSID? What a crock. If you change your SSID, and have as many WiFi devices as I have, that means going around and changing each and every single device that connects to WiFi as well.

It appears that the only comfort I can take away from this is that the router, SSID "password", and encryption that I used back in 2007 when Google photographed my house has long since been replaced. The SSID remains the same, but that's it.

It appears that Google has long forgotten about it's motto of "Don't Be Evil".
