    I was like $50 TAX on a $169.99 device? 25% Tax??!?!?!?!

    Then I read the fine print...they for some reason charge sales tax on PRE-SALE value of $649.99.....WTF....God damn California...just because you are broke as a state, don't you dare try to even the balance sheet by scamming us...

    God you disgust me...time to leave for NY... yuck!:mad::mad::mad::mad:

    Dude...that's only like 6.66% in sales tax...The cheapest sales tax here is around ~8.5%...

    ----------

    It SEEMS like 25% in sales tax but it is actually around 7.7% in tax..

    It comes out to be $50 because they are charging tax on PRE-subsidized price of $649.99 instead of $169.99!

    It's like saying we'll give you a discount on the product...but we'll charge TAX from the PRE-discounted price....W T F...:mad::mad::mad:

    Got no clue...honestly..
