Not only can technology maybe help infertile couples make babies with artificial sperm, but it can also let fertile ex-couples know if one of them has a baby on the way. It wasn’t his intent, but one British man was shocked to find out that his ex-girlfriend was pregnant through a section in the Google Play store. The section “shows you what your friends are recommending, based on what they may have reviewed or +1’d,” Mashable reported.
An Android user named Ben (last name not provided) told BBC Radio 4’s consumer affairs show: “I was downloading an app to my Android phone… and it basically showed me that my ex-girlfriend had rated a pregnancy app.” Ben added: “I don’t think she would have wanted anyone to have found out through that route. I think she would have preferred to have said it via an email of face to face,” he said.
According to Mashable, “his ex emailed him some time after, confirming the news.”
Learn from Ben’s mistake and immediately remove any ex-lovers from your Google Play community. Especially if you're experiencing a potentially disastrous relationship like this celebrity.
