Re: Taxing Online Entertainment

I would think, and I have no facts to back this up, that they'll essentially make the seller charge the tax when you make the purchase.
And if they find a seller that is not, that will be reason to file further legal action against that [more]

Re: Windows 9

Ok, I read everyone's reply to you so far, and while their replies may be accurate, it seems to me they missed the point of your question:

Instead of a powerline adapter and another router, I think I'd recommend a network extender. Seems like you could position the router and the extender to get good coverage on both sides of the fireplace chimney.

If your 10 shares were purchased at $40 per share, now they've split and you have 20 shares that cost you $20 each (split adjusted).
It all works out that way.
