    Siri! Where is Apple hiding all of its money?

    Overseas, according to protesters dressed as Apple Store employees, who want the company to start paying its fair share, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

    Apple stashes as much as $102 billion in holdings "overseas," said a group of protesters, who arrived on-scene at San Francisco's Union Square store for about half an hour on Tuesday. Organizers called the protest a little "Tax Day fun."

    The protesters include union members with SEIU USWW, who organize security guards and janitors at tech firms and other companies in San Francisco and the East Bay.

    The store did not close during the half-hour long protest, the newspaper reported.
