U.S. government sends letters to Apple, Google about data collection

The Energy and Commerce Committee today sent letters to Apple CEO Tim Cook and Alphabet CEO Larry Page to probe the companies’ representation of third-party access to consumer data, and the collection and use of audio recording data as well as location information via iPhone and Android devices.

I believe the government is going to find some major differences in how these two companies view data, the collection of it, and the privacy of its customers.
