What do tech companies know about us and when do they know it?

CEOs of Google and Apple have been asked to testify at a U.S. Senate hearing on mobile technology and privacy concerns, amid reports that smart phones could be tracking users' locations.

The hearing, scheduled for May 10, was called as consumers worry that technology could be compromising their privacy and personal information.

Apple and Google are facing scrutiny from consumers and lawmakers concerning data that's being collected from mobile users and stored. Senators urged Google CEO Larry Page and Apple CEO Steve Jobs to testify, though there was no word yet if they would.
