No place in Google Checkout to set international tax rates. Do we owe? How to Pay?

 I'm based in the US and if I go into my google checkout merchant
account and go into tax settings, there are only options for setting
tax rates for US states. Aren't we supposed to charge VAT taxes if we
sell ( via Android Market/Google Checkout) internationally??

Not that I would know how to actually pay those countries their taxes.

Do I in fact owe taxes to other countries if I'm in the US and selling
software (apps) say to the UK? My company has physical presence in
only one US state. For sales to US customers that typically means I
only have to charge (the customer) and pay (the state) sales tax when
the "shipping address" of the customer is in the same state that my
company has a presence in.

But how is it supposed to work for sales from US to other countries,
and where do we set this up in Google Checkout and how (if in fact we
owe those countries their tax money) do we actually go about paying

1. Media Framework

I have tried to add new functionalities to the Android Media Player,
however, I'm having some problems understanding the structure of the
Android Media Player.
I would like know if anyone has also done some work related to Media
Player, more specifically in the integration of new features in the
reception and buffering of stream rtsp or http..

So far can see that after the call C functions through the JNI from
the java interface, mediaLib use bpbinder to communicate with the
playerdriver which in turn uses the pv_player_engine! However, I can't
see where it makes the media buffer.
If someone has already worked in this area and can share some
information about the structure of Media Player..


2. How to have a notification icon with image + text

Hi Mark Mruphy,

I did the same way, tried to pass same ID. it is now displaying one
icon. But the number of such notification is not displaying i.e number
is not displaying. if i turn off and on bluetooth then it will display
the number.

Why this behavior? whether have to use any flag for this?
