Apple Yanks Sex Offender Locator From App Store to the Relief of Perverts Everywhere

Remember the Sex Offender Locator in the App Store? Because America kind of sucks sometimes, it was one of Apple's top 10 paid apps for a while. Until Apple yanked it, that is.

The makers are apparently planning on suing Apple over this, but I don't think they have a leg to stand on: it's illegal to sell someone's personal information in California, kidtoucher or no. And since this was a paid app, they really don't have much to say about it, now do they?

I guess now it's back to finding out whether or not your neighbor is going to molest you the old fashioned way: via judgement of their appearance. [TechCrunch]
