News reports say Google has removed a Brazilian Android application called "Rastreador de Namorados," or "Boyfriend Tracker" in Portuguese, from its Google Play app store, citing privacy concerns. The app, created by a 24-year-old software developer from Sao Paulo, allows users to track the location and text traffic of their unsuspecting partners. (AP Photo/Silvia Izquierdo)
