    The state of Maryland is proposing a digital download tax...everything from smartphone apps to music downloads and digital books would be subject to M's 6% sales tax:

    The MD state motto would hold true - "If you can dream it, we can tax it." (Yes, I am a Md state resident)

    Fail. So how does it work if you're just passing through at the airport or whatever? Do they charge the tax if you're using towers or servers in the area? Seems like a bad way to go, but we shall see what happens.
