| 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 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 of 
| Apple and Google, which both declined to 
| testify. "It was a stupid mistake for them 
| not to show up, and I say shame on them."
| [...]
| Like Microsoft and Google before it, Apple 
| is getting attention from regulators as it 
| grows and starts to compete more directly 
| with other technology heavyweights.
