  2. 2. Google bans phone apps used in spying 1. A controversial mobile phone application, which helps a cell phone user read the text messages of others secretly, has been removed from sale by internet search engine Google. 2.

  5. 5. FII biggies cashing out on listing gains 1. FUNDS run by Citigroup, Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs are among those that sell shares on the listing day to reap the riches from initial public offerings (IPOs), contrary to popular perception that top institutions are long-term investors. 2. Most recent listings have plunged below their IPO sale prices, partly due to these funds cashing out, and also because of the unsustainable valuations at which they were sold compared with their earnings and revenues.
