Apple squirming over tax questions.

If you’d like to watch Apple, Microsoft and Adobe squirm before a committee on IT Pricing in Australia, then today is your lucky day! There just happens to be one going on right now, and it’ll be going right until 2:30 PM today.
Apple is on the stand as we speak, and currently answering (or rather, dodging) questions about how much tax they pay in Australia, and how it relates to their sales figures (which are apparently about 3% of global sales). Apple has come under fire recently for using voodoo magic to pay far, far less tax in Australia than it should.
