Tim Cook to be Asked to Testify in NSA Case

Apple CEO Tim Cook is on the shortlist of witnesses of German Lawmakers to testify in the NSA case. The Wall Street Journal reports that the investigating panel would like to invite Tim Cook, Mark Zuckerberg and other CEOs as witnesses in the NSA spying scandal.

I do not know what kind of leverage a German panel has over US CEOs. I would not be surprised if Tim Cook and his peers politely decline. the Committee head, Roderich Kiesewetter said: "U.S. citizens summoned by the Committee aren't obliged to appear if they are outside Germany, "but we hope they will come."

As Germany was not able to get any commitment from Obama to stop spying on Germans this government investigation is likely not leading to anything. The Obama admistration acknowledged that they used internet companies to spy on their users. We actually still do not know if that really stopped. The Internet CEOs have taken a stance against it, but can they really protect us?

Watch below a report from The Street about this.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
