Tax by weight? So an engagement ring worth $20 gets taxed pennies, and a hardback book worth $20 gets taxed a buck? Not gonna work either.
And if you just tax at a flat rate for all shipments entering your state, all you've done is raised the cost of doing business to those in your state and given them one more incentive to move to nevada, arizona, or oregon.
the real solution here is to stop spending more money as a state than we have. This state collects a historically high amount of tax money, and still wastes more money than we take in. The budget needs to be balanced, and it can't be balanced on the backs of the tax payer alone.

I mean, really - it should have been obvious to anyone that a media/web tablet would need printing capability! Printing out web pages and emails to compressed dead tree material is TEH FUTURE.
