Google hands Germany written info, not hard drive

Germany's consumer protection minister is urging Google Inc. to hand over full details of personal data it vacuumed up as part of its "Street View" mapping program.
Consumer Protection Minister Isle Aigner told the daily Hamburger Abendblatt that Google must "lay all its cards on the table."
Johannes Caspar, head of the Hamburg data protection office, said Thursday the U.S. Internet giant had submitted a written explanation of organizational and technical information, but failed to include a hard drive used for "Street View" in Germany, citing a legal conflict.
Google has apologized for recording fragments of people's online activities broadcast over non-secured wi-fi networks for the past four years. Aigner insisted that an apology is "not enough."
