    i'm pretty sure i read 100k EUR somewhere yesterday, which is almost the double amount what OP wrote, but it's still nothing for Google

    OP most likely meant 87k GBP

    87K in either GBP EUR or USD is aprox. the amount an used tissue from one of G's CEO's would get at auction.

    Even if this just pocket change for Google, actually the fact itself is more important.

    I actually don't think they were intentionally doing anything wrong. They were the ones that disclosed to various govts. that they had picked up wifi data, it didn't come as the result of an investigation or anything.

    there have been several isolated incidents of google getting fines here and there. this means nothing, and it's a "start" to nothing.
