    The Supreme Court ruled in 1992 that no state can require an online seller to collect sales tax unless the seller has a "physical presence," such as a store or factory, in the state. Today the Supreme Court, by a 5-4 vote, reversed that decision. (Trump appointee Neil Gorsuch was one of the five who voted in favor of the taxes.) We will soon be paying taxes on everything we buy online. George Harrison's 1966 song Taxman is proving to be prophetic: Everything that can be taxed will be taxed.

    CEO Reed Hastings says Friedland used "the N-word on at least two occasions." The N-word? My dictionary has hundreds of words starting with the letter N. But I guess we all know what word he's referring to.

    The Chinese smartphone manufacturer was illegally sharing US technology with Iran and North Korea. In April 2018, the Department of Commerce banned US companies from exporting parts and components to ZTE. Trump wants the ban reversed. Let's see how loudly that billion-dollar payment speaks.

    In the past few years, Facebook, Twitter, Google and other sites have had to deal with major problems caused by hacks, privacy issues, data leaks, data thefts and data sharing. What has Cisco learned from all this? Obviously, nothing.

    Cisco is buying July Systems, a startup that uses WiFi to gather data from people as they move around malls, airports and stadiums
