Good morning! For years, Mark Zuckerberg has been trying to find the next great computing platform beyond the smartphone—and make sure that Facebook defined it. This quest has led to the company’s futuristic forays into VR, AR, and the metaverse. And now it’s inspired Ray-Ban Stories, a line of sunglasses with built-in cameras designed to let you capture life’s moments while keeping your smartphone in your pocket. I spoke to Zuckerberg about the new gadget, tried it myself, and put it into context among Facebook’s many grand ambitions.

The richest people in America are “choosing not to pay” hundreds of billions of dollars in taxes that they owe each year, according to a new Treasury Department report released Wednesday.
The top 1%’s tax-dodging—about $163 billion annually—accounts for about 28% of the total lost annually in unpaid taxes ($600 billion). 
Over the next decade, this “striking” sum would equal almost 1% of the country’s nearly $23 trillion GDP.
The Biden administration is leveraging the report’s lopsided but not exactly unexpected findings to strengthen its case for handing the IRS another $80 billion for tax enforcement.
