PC Chrome users pay less online. Mac more!
The New York Times
reports shoppers are getting widely different prices based on whether they use Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, or Safari. Here are just two examples:
For the same Samsung TV on NewEgg.com, a Chrome user was offered a price of $997. Meanwhile, the price was $1,399 when using Firefox or Internet Explorer.
Another Samsung television model at Walmart.com was offered for $199 on Firefox and $168 on Chrome and Internet Explorer.
Meanwhile, Mac users could be paying a higher rate for hotel rooms on Orbitz.
The Wall Street Journal
Orbitz has been experimenting with a 30% premium on Mac users when they search for select hotel rooms versus PC users. That effectively works out to be around $20 to $30 more than a PC user.
I never liked Mac anyway & gave my iPad to my son when the novelty quickly wore off.
