    Just got mine as well. Nice. I'm moving to Bali. I wish.

    Gov Brown hasn't signed it yet. Said wouldn't pass new taxes without giving voters a chance to vote on them. Hopefully he will stick to it. Yeah, not holding my breath on that.

    Yep, I just got the same thing. I don't understand how a new tax on online sales in California would affect the associates program.

    What about this tax makes the associates program worse for Amazon?
