Lame or not, the point was - er, the point. Google deliberately did
something; the discussion is about whether what they deliberately did is
actually against the law in Oz.
For all the technical arguments you have brought to bear, you have still
not addressed the two simple points people have been making - that the
technology is irrelevant, and that it's about collection, not mere

Noone is playing dumb. Some are ignorant (and have no doubt been
enlightened by your excellent technical descriptions), and some disagree

Ah - the last resort of the person without an answer!
Wifi does not store or collect data beyond a tiny amount necessary to
maintain connections and encode/decode data. It certainly does not store
or collect any payloads. If you have any technical references showing
the contrary, do please feel free to provide them. You are after all the
one constantly requesting "proof".

I've just gone back and read everything in June. Might have missed
something, but I couldn't on first blush see anything that would
indicate that wifi stores or collects anything. So no, not a "device"; I
am genuinely curious as to how wifi collects or stores data - especially
payloads, but anything really.
