Greetings everyone,

We wanted to take a moment and let everyone know about the [email protected] community on Lemmy.World which hasn't gained much traction. Additionally, we've noticed occasional complaints about Business-related news being posted in the Technology community. To address this, we want to encourage our community members to engage with the Business community.

While we'll still permit Technology-related business news here, unless it becomes overly repetitive, we kindly ask that you consider cross-posting such content to the Business community. This will help foster a more focused discussion environment in both communities.

We've interacted with the mod team of the Business community, and they seem like a dedicated and welcoming group, much like the rest of us here on Lemmy. If you're interested, we encourage you to check out their community and show them some support!

Let's continue to build a thriving and inclusive ecosystem across all our communities on Lemmy.World!

The New Orleans Collector of Revenue (“Collector”) failed in its attempts to subject music streaming services to the City’s sales tax. In* *Apple, Inc. v. Collector of Revenue of the City of New Orleans et. al., Docket No. L01283 (May 2, 2024), the Louisiana Board of Tax Appeals, Local Tax Division, analyzed the Company’s summary judgment motion and noted (1) that the City did not file an opposition to the motion and (2) that the City would “not consent to the granting of the motion.” We often see collectors raise no specific objection to an assessment challenge, except proffering their “we say so” positions, essentially arguing that if a court will give you a win, so be it. That is not fairness in tax administration, and we hope the Louisiana Governor is listening.

The City issued assessments to the Company for the periods January 1, 2016 through October 31, 2018, asserting sales tax, interest, and penalties with respect to the Company’s music streaming subscriptions. The Company challenged, asserting the City’s assessments were an illegal, discriminatory tax under the Internet Tax Freedom Act (“ITFA”) codified in the notes to 47 U.S.C. § 151. The Board found three undisputed material facts: (1) the Company’s service uses the Internet to stream audio content, such as music, to devices connected to the Internet; (2) satellite radio service allows the streaming of audio content, such as music, using satellites to devices capable of receiving satellite signals; and (3) the audio content streamed using the Internet to the Company’s subscribers is similar to the audio content streamed by satellite radio providers using satellite signals.

Netflix has managed to annoy a good number of its users with an announcement about an upcoming update to its Windows 11 (and Windows 10) app: support for adverts and live events will be added, but the ability to download content is being taken away.

Netflix must realize that it's a huge frustration for people who relied on offline downloads to watch content without internet access: on planes, trains, and campsites, and anywhere else where Wi-Fi is unavailable or unreliable.

There's a small chance that Netflix will change its mind if it gets enough complaints, but the streaming service seems determined to add as many money-making features as possible, while taking away genuinely useful ones.

I find it hard to believe that, outside of work computers, many people would be choosing Windows over Mac or Linux, especially is AI is their goal.

I'm also curious why the comments are turned off for this article unless it is a paid ad for Microsoft.

Microsoft is trying to restore Bing as the default search engine on users' browsers by spinning it as a "repair" through a utility app called PC Manager.

PC Manager is designed to boost a Windows PC's performance by freeing up memory and eliminating unused apps and files. It offers "Health check" and "Repair tips" buttons, which users can click on to see the recommended actions.

However, Windows Latest noticed the app pushing a curious recommendation: Both Repair tips and Health check nudge you to restore Bing as the default search engine on the Edge browser.
