OPSEC! (Edited)

Android Central: How to hide your Wifi from Google's location database.

I've edited the original post, because I thought I'd saved it as a draft, to be edited later; I've been using the "Add-It" app for Firefox, and I'm not entirely happy with the way posts turn out.  Usually, it just gives me a link to the article, but sometimes I get the full article.  This was the first time it included a photograph!   Anyway, click on through. And don't feed the trolls.

Here's a link to the Official Google Blog's description: Don't you just love the way this is phrased as "Greater choice" for unsuspecting folks who have no idea Googlemobiles might be out there snooping in them?

Except you've left off the trailing period. Google's spec required "_nomap." - including the period.

So, so stupid.
