What Took You So Long?

Google apologizes:

Google on Tuesday acknowledged to state officials that it had violated people’s privacy during its Street View mapping project when it casually scooped up passwords, e-mail and other personal information from unsuspecting computer users.

I’d prefer a more personal apology, preferably in the form of a great big personal check. Or maybe they could just cut it out with the stupid Google+ stuff ruining everything. That’d be cool, too.
