Apple secrecy is bitter fruit on Hill

Subject: txt lbrty hots - sclm bbro -
Apple is famous for its veil of secrecy around the new iPads and iPhones. But Sen. John Rockefeller and others in Congress wonder whether the company has more than technological innovations to hide. When Apple didn’t participate in an April hearing on children’s online privacy, the West Virginia Democrat who chairs the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee, gave voice to his suspicions.

“When people don’t show up when we ask them to ... all it does is increases our interest in what they’re doing and why they didn’t show up,”

Rockefeller said

[Is this America? Who works for who here?]
