  1. They are in market cap, not in production numbers. Their paper value is what makes them the 2nd biggest.
  2. Yeah, you need to maybe educate yourself a little more on the subject before making comments like this.
  3. Anyone stupid enough to run out of gas deserves to push their car. (Speaking only for the US) There are gas stations in almost every town in the country. If you decided not to stop at one because you thought that you could make it to the next one, it's your own damn fault you don't make.
  4. We agree on half of this. Newegg cannot charge sales tax for CT. It's just not how state sales tax works with an out-of-state entity. They are not responsible to know state sales tax in CT and wouldn't be able to pay it if they wanted to. It's not a matter of them not wanting to, it's a matter of what they can't do. They would need to create a physical location in CT with CT employees to do this. They should not have passed on the information without federal court order, not a CT court order, but a federal court order.
  5. So not Newegg, but every single online retailer without a presence in your state? Because no online retailer does this and are not responsible for it. If they should be responsible for it, legislation needs to make it so. It's 100% not their job to inform you of your state's tax laws when they do not have an office or any employees in your state. The four states that they mention, and only those four, have legislation in place that make Newegg have that disclaimer. Because they are not responsible for state sales tax in a state that they have no presence in. They don't even have a system in place where Newegg could pay that sales tax if they wanted to, it's just not an option with how state sales tax works.
  6. The bolded is very incorrect. You're now trying to argue a point with me that I conceded in my very first post. I said that Newegg should not have turned over the sales data. I said they're not innocent, you're just trying to look like you weren't proved wrong on the tax points. including any tax costs associated with it. NO Thats not how USA Tax Works there's still no way to input the correct tax amount in Newegg's checkout process. Because THATS also not how it works, They dont charge tax because they are not set up with CT to Pay them Sales tax if they were you wouldn't need to put in your own tax on the order. So even if you had every intention of paying the correct tax amount and knew about this issue ahead of time, you're still using Newegg's flawed checkout system. When a Company of any kind doesnt charge you tax and you have the Intention to pay this tax you would file it with your tax year and pay the tax. This is how Use Tax works. And as mentioned before by other people in this thread, the average consumer just looking to buy computer parts from this place isn't going to automatically think "Ooh, I better make sure I'm paying the correct use tax amount on this order." We're techies-- not accountants This Excuse is BS for anyone who Files there yearly Taxes. you clearly have to check a box saying you didn't buy anything without getting taxed on it this year and dont need to pay taxes on any Untaxed goods. If you dont personally file your taxes and pay a person to do it and they dont ask you this question you should hire another tax professional ( Any kid or person whos never had a job i can see this excuse to some degree Though .) only Place newegg is in the wrong is in the Fact they didnt Give customers a heads up that there sending the data over to CT. If they were the ones not legally collecting taxes CT would be going after them not you. But there following current laws and you are not so CT is going after the Consumer. For years people have purpoesly buying online to avoid this tax loop hole and then not filing the taxes to pay it correctly. CT is just the first to Actively go after this problem Yeah Its not confirmed and my view would change somewhat if so. but Like i said i dont think newegg Handled this right at all and i understand people being upset but not to the degree acting like oh no man ive been purpoesly buying untaxed shit to save money newegg should of taxed me its not my fault i owe this even though when i file taxes it asks if i bought untaxed shit i owe tax on now. I Dont know why CT would want to make that deal though im sure 3 years of back taxes is a large amount on top of the fact all future purchases from newegg will also get most likely be correctly claimed each year from now on either way. i just dont see the Positive side of CT making that deal for the goverment or at least a large enough one to offer that,
  7. It is not Newegg's responsibility to teach you tax code. Use tax isn't new and didn't appear overnight. Willful ignorance isn't an excuse to blame others for your tax error.
  8. This is 100% wrong. Why should Newegg pay for their customer's willful tax evasion.
  9. The amount of misinformation and incorrect assumptions in this thread are astounding. If you live in the United States and don't pay use tax, it's your fault, not Newegg's. Every state in the US that has a general sales tax, has a use tax. It's not new, it's not a surprise (unless you're completely ignorant to what you're doing when you file taxes). Companies shipping from out of state are not responsible for collecting a state tax in which they do not have a physical presence. So the states have a use tax so they can collect the tax they're owed on purchases made online by their residents. I live in Utah. Until about a year or so ago, Amazon had no presence here, so no taxes were charged on purchases made and you were supposed to report those purchase on your state tax return. Now, Amazon has a growing presence here with facilities so they now charge tax when I buy online through them. Now, I personally have never paid use tax because I do not like taxation and will avoid it in any way that I can. But if I'm audited, I fully expect to pay back taxes for purchases made online through Amazon, Newegg, etc. However, Newegg isn't fully innocent in this. They should not have turned over their sales records to Connecticut so cavalierly. They are not obligated to do so until they are ordered to by a Federal court, since they have no presence in Connecticut and are therefore not governed by them. But, they are 100% not responsible for any penalties or fees owed as a result of your tax evasion.

    Apple Rumored To Consider Purchasing Disney

    I don't see this happening, but if by some miracle it did, I'd be incredibly sad.
  11. I still have my Note 7. I was planning on trading it in soon anyway though since I'm flying to Europe. There is literally no other phone on the market that I want though.
  12. It just depends on which side of politics you're on. I'm white and upper-middle class, as are most people that I know, and he's made things worse for us. But he's helped minorities and poorer people. So it all depends on your own circumstances. I pay more in taxes and my health insurance premium has doubled. I know many self-employed people who have had to drop their health insurance altogether because of the massive premium hikes to cover other people's insurance. Luckily, my employer pays the majority of my premium. I don't like him at all but I can see why there are people who do.

    Uber drivers win key employment case against Uber.

    He didn't say a single thing about his work. How do you know that Orangator doesn't work two jobs? Your post makes no sense and wreaks of entitlement.

    Apple "Hello again" Live Stream

    A massive majority of wired mice do not have detachable cables. Also, most of the ones that do, don't have standard micro-usb ports. I don't really care that they're all type c, but people will need to buy and use dongles, adapters etc.
  15. As if iPhones weren't already oversized for their screen real estate, you have to more than double the size of the chin to add a feature it should already have.
