Apple, Google, they are the same

Old story.

The current companies collect our personal information and they do what they want, sell them, make money on them.
For me is ok if I know it and I can select which informations provide.
After Apple and his "I'm collecting wifi spots for blahblahblah" is the time for Google.

Let me be a bit angry when I can trace with Google, through the MAC address of my wifi router, my home address.
I have no idea how they did it to collect all this data (google cars?), But that does not please me at all.

Considerations to you.

Insert your MAC address : and try.
This site reads a public Google database.
You can find your MAC in your router details.

I've tryed:
- Pc network card MAC: nothing
- Smartphone MAC: nothing
- Router ASDL port MAC: nothing
- Router LAN port MAC: nothing
- Router WIFI port MAC:  ... aw, sh*t... my current address

My access point is not for public use, it's crypted and not so powerfull. So, why collecting it?

Google, don't be evil.
