    Sen. Rockefeller Also Will Hold Mobile Privacy Hearing

Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.), chairman of the subcommittee on Privacy, Technology and the Law of the Senate Judiciary Committee has scheduled a hearing on mobile privacy issues: “Protecting Mobile Privacy: Your Smartphones, Tablets, Cell Phones and Your Privacy.”
