Pretty scary stuff :blink:

Ive actually tried it with local wireless routers in my neighborhood. Its not far off, but not going to give you someones address either. For instance, one neighbors mac address showed up miles across town from where we are, so its more like a geo-ip location search than anything, just based on mac address instead. Only estimates the area for which the address resides, but not going to bring people to your doorstep. Its a neat find though.
