This is a reply to my question when I bought a downloadable game for $26.00 and saw a weird little tax on top for $2.60.
The helpful reply from the company:
Taxes are calculated for us by a company that specializes in this stuff, based on your billing address. Many countries charge tax for downloads but I don't know about Australia specifically.
A tax on intangible products?! What the fuck?!
It exists in the realm of ones and zeros, and it's still LEGAL to MAKE A TAX PROFIT from NOTHING?!
That's just fucking nuts. My country and likely most make a PROFIT on AIR.
No box, no disc, no manual, just RAW DATA.

I'm trying to decide what to ask for for my birthday in June and I'm considering a digital camera.
Does anyone have any reccomendations? I'd like to get as really good quality as possible at a good price if possible.
Any help is appreciated.
I was wondering why I got replies to people not in this commuity, when I realised I posted it to my personal LJ. Ha!
Anyway. It's been a while.
So hopefully people still actively read the place, and can offer me some advice. I'm looking at investing in a new TV. Something hi-def, 1080, good for my new PS3 when I pay it off. An investment in the future!
But I don't know all that much about them, like the difference between LCD and plasma. What's better? What looks better? What lasts longer? Good models? Good brands? Good stores? Good places for advice?
