I seem to have a lot of smart friends, another one observed this:
A very smart friend of mine from the Czech Republic immediately twigged then I showed him this article that Google is not gathering the location data through WarDriving. That would be highly inefficient and their database would soon age. And if they did it by WarDriving they wouldn't have my friend's MAC address either, as he lives on top of a tall building and there is little chance of picking up his WiFi signal from ground level.
