Jobs: Apple Will Be At Hearing

April 27, 2011

Apple CEO Steve Jobs said Wednesday that his firm will agree to a Senate committee's request that someone from the company testify at hearing on mobile phone tracking.

In an interview with All Things Digital, Jobs said, "They have asked us to come and we will honor their request, of course." He did not say who would be testifying.

Senate Judiciary Chairman Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., wrote Jobs and Google CEO Larry Page Wednesday to request that both companies appear at the May 10th hearing before the panel's Privacy, Technology and the Law Subcommittee. The hearing will focus on reports that Apple's iPhone and Google's Android smart phone track the location of its users.

A Google spokesman said the company also has agreed to testify at the hearing. "We look forward to engaging with policymakers about how we protect our users' mobile privacy," the company said in a statement.
