Jew or Not Jew – The App!

It seems that Apple is again in some hot water for approving an app that offends some religious sensibilities — and a few laws:

PARIS (AP) — A French anti-racism group has threatened to sue Apple over an iPhone application called “A Jew or Not a Jew?” that allows users to consult a database of celebrities and public figures to determine whether they are Jewish or not.

SOS Racisme said the application, sold for 0.79 euro cents ($1.07) on the Apple Store France, violates France’s strict laws banning the compiling of people’s personal details without their consent.
