Ha.  He's probably upset because Apple did not slip him enough money for his campaign.  The 1% and corporations sidestep huge amounts of taxes.  The Senator himself probably pays very little taxes himself.

They will have a very tough time competing against the iPad and the Kindle. By October the iPad will have a huge lead and I can't imagine how a Windows 8 tablet will catch up.
the multitude of other companies that get rid of American workers in favor of workers in other countries that earn much much less and have much worse working conditions. So why are they talking about expanding their headquarters if they are moving the jobs out of the country?
But what about people who need 500 GB storage? or wired ethernet?
