A federal court in the Northern District of California have authorized the United States Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to identify taxpayers that have used a cryptocurrency exchange. In particular, the IRS wants to know about taxpayers who conducted at least $20,000 in crypto transactions from 2016 to 2020. Cryptocurrencies were originally designed to be an anonymous payment method that could not be regulated by governments. But as they have become a widespread payment instrument as well as an investment asset for those who want to protect their savings and/or make some additional money, they quickly emerged on the radar of tax collecting agencies, such as the IRS. Although crypto transactions are still anonymous, the process or buying or selling cryptocurrencies is not. To that end, it is not surprising that the IRS want to know about U.S. taxpayers who used cryptocurrencies in the past few years. For now, the court in California authorized the IRS to identify Americans who … [Read more...] about IRS Now Seeks Identities of American Cryptocurrency Traders

Amazon Prime Day 2021 isn’t set to arrive until June, but that doesn’t mean we can’t start embracing what we expect to be the retailer’s most exciting event to date with a little bit of harmless speculation.

Before we can look forward to Prime Day 2021, we first need to look back to Prime Day 2020 — an anomaly in the history of the event.

I have been complaining about the size of laptop bezels for years. Ever since Dell kicked off the trend in 2015 with the redesigned XPS 13 , I’ve been pushing for smaller and smaller bezels in laptops to match what phone manufacturers have accomplished. In that period of time, the iPhone went from having a home button on a large bottom chin to almost no bottom bezel whatsoever. I’ve been wanting laptops to take that same cutting-edge approach. But then 2020 hit, and priorities and usage habits were flipped on their heads. Looking back, the push for ultra-thin bezels may have been a mistake. Design compromises Let’s start with why this whole began in the first place. Why desire thin bezels in the first place, you ask? The obvious answer is the look. Thinner bezels just feel futuristic. They remove the distractions and put the contents of the screen at the forefront. But let’s be honest, putting thinner bezels on your products is mostly about following trends.
