U.S. Speaker of the House of Representatives John Boehner met with Apple CEO Tim Cook at the U.S. Capitol today.
Two photos of the meeting were posted to the Speaker’s website today.
Beyond Boeher’s iPhone, it is unclear what was discussed, but, if we had to hazard a guess, we’d bet that the idea tax repatriation holiday was at least mentioned (see related articles below).
