South Koreas communications regulator has fined Google $196,000 (or the more impressive-sounding 210 million won) for sucking up personal data during a Street View mapping project back in 2010. These payload data fragments apparently included details on unprotected WiFi networks — the same stuff you heard about when both Germany and France fined the company. The regulator has ordered Google to delete all collected private data and to keep the public updated as this deletion progresses.
