This is the natural evolution of everything: search the easiest way to do get the best result.
Now let's wait till we are all plugged in, "matrix" or "surrogates" style.

[citation][nom]bender3000[/nom]Great! More data to encourage those lawmakers seeking to increase taxes for online purchases. *sigh*[/citation]

So if I'm reading the article correctly, all online sales across the world for an entire year are equivalent to about 26% of the US Federal Government's annual expenditures.

Pretty sobering.

and american law makers want to tax it. that measly 335 billion in sales would amount to 24 billion in taxes, while congress spends 100+ billion a month reckless run away out of control spending spree on the poor.
internet sales taxes will not save them or staunch the megahemorrhage of wealth from america.
8.4 trillion to 16.4 trillion in 3&1/2 years and soon to be 22-24 trillion in in 3 more years according to the CBO.
remember how the U.S.S.R. collapsed? it was from alot less debt than this!

mean while the dollar is becoming more an more worthless as leaves are becoming more scarce than it!
loving your free trade deals brought to you by pot smoker 'slippery willy' clinton called NAFTA, WTO, PNTR with CHINA, ASFTA (Nobama)?
that's trillions of dollars in tax money lost every year due to those in taxable good and taxable jobs.

There is nothing wrong with smoking pot if you are responsible, just like alcohol.

I guess much of the US market growth can be attributed to the surge of Smart Phones and mCommerce. But the growth of APAC markets is quite surprising - wonder whats behind it - growing broadband penetration?
