Apple, Google testifying before US Senate on location data and mobile privacy

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?

Rob says:

Apple should have sent a lobbyist. Its all about who you know, not what you know.

Glenn#IM says:

Lobbyist, same reason. It really is all about who you know. Congress tends to protect, and believe their own. A lobbyist is part of the family.

sting7k says:

I'm sure Apple's VP has a team of counsel one row behind him. Although they might have just sent a lobbyist anyway who is friendly with congress.

Ronn says:

A lobbyist should not be allowed. Apple fill their heads with technical mumbo jumbo and leave a perplexed look on their face.

OrionAntares#CB says:

Apple doesn't use technical mumbo jumbo, they use magic and fairy dust!

felface says:

This is one of those big IF things that have no real immediate danger but if you were to actually go through the long process then you might be in danger of people fondng out your nearest telecomn tower yet they need a hearing for that?

danny92975 says:

Apple and Google are not arguing with eachother they are both there to explain what the tracking does and how it works hopefully. Two engineers wouldn't been confusing to them and two lobbyist wouldn't left them with questions. I'm sure Apple and Google come to a conclusion you send an engineer and we will sent a lobbyist so they can ask whatever they want.
