Apple and Google are testifying today before the US senate on the issues concerning the collection of location data and mobile privacy in general. Daring Fireball notes something of interest:
Apple is represented by Bud Tribble, a vice president of software engineering. Google is represented by Alan Davidson, a lobbyist.
Would Apple have been smarter to send in the lawyers/political consultants like Google? Or should Google have sent a VP level engineer as well? And what if anything do you hope comes from this committee hearing?
