Google's has built its empire on ads, but analysts say it will have to find another way to make money for its new gaming service Stadia (GOOG, GOOGL)

Google wowed the world when it unveiled its new game streaming service, Stadia, on Tuesday, but it failed to address how the service will make money.  Despite the lack of information around a monetization approach, one thing analysts that we spoke to agree on is that an ads-based model will not be enough to sustain Google's ambitious gaming project.  Having to add an alternative revenue stream to ads may be difficult for Google, given its spotty track record with 'for-pay' services, but if ...

2019 Federal Tax Regulations List

Since 2011, I've created and maintained websites that list the federal tax regulations issued to date for the year. Perhaps that sounds a bit tax nerdy, but I find it helps me get ready access to current regs and the preamble. It also helps with the tax update presentations I do throughout the year, providing that as a resource to attendees.  The webpage for the 2019 regs has links for all years back to 2011. Note that it's also a good way to see how many tax regs are issued each year. I hope y...
