More wackiness from Cupertino’s council of app elders! First they approved the possibly-illegal sex offender locator app, and it rose to the top 10. Then they yanked it. Now, it’s back again.
Why is it back? Who knows. It’s still illegal in California, as selling personal info is against the law there, which was presumably why it was yanked before. It would be legal if it was made free, but it’s still selling like hotcakes at $US0.99 to parents who are worried about sex offenders but probably feeding their kids McDonald’s every other day, because that’s just how people are.
