Amazon.com to Charge Sales Tax on New Jersey Orders Starting in 2013

We have some bad news for people who like to shop on Amazon.com in New Jersey. The giant retailer is out to build two huge distribution centers within New Jersey that Governor Chris Christie says will bring 1500 new full-time jobs to the area. The downside is, with the physical presence in New Jersey the company will have to start charging sales tax. The state sales tax for New Jersey is 7%.

Before you get too angry about the new distribution centers coming to New Jersey, apparently Amazon.com is going to have to charge sales tax whether its distribution centers are built within the state or not. Online retailers not having to charge sales tax in states where they don't have a physical presence has been a sore point for both cash-strapped states and retail stores.

Google Glasses
Ever wondered if your children will inherit your digital data? Longaccess promises to be a cold storage of sorts for your digital life.

Why Google Isn't Growing (GOOG)

Source: The Business Insider

Google CEO Larry Page can be forgiven for being in a bad mood this weekend. On his company's Q1 2014 earnings call, his people delivered what he thought would be good news: revenues of $15.4 billion, up 19%. Very, very few business can deliver 20% growth on billions in revenues. By any measure, Google is on fire as a company. Yet investors hated it. They sold the stock, and it declined 5% immediately after the call. In 24 hours the price had lost $9, f ...

 In this March 3, 1997 file photo, Yahoo co-founders David Filo, left, and Jerry Yang, right, hold up a fish prop at Yahoo headquarters in Santa Clara, Calif.    AS two different people have now noted, Matt Yglesias and Matt Levine, Yahoo is now officially valued at less than nothing.

The conundrum is explained by the fact that there are really two differ ...
