Isn't this phenomenon of interactive pricing simply capitalism in action? That is, pushing demand (via cost) to meet supply?
heh. heh.... Capitalism is a two sided deal. What we have here is unmitigated greed and general******of the over-trusting (aka stupid)or of those unable to make such determinations.
If they are adjusting the price on the fly by somehow scouring your computer information then it appears to me that an application designed to scour the web to front load these invasive programs with other people's pricing is in order. On top of that create a dummy site with the purpose of providing a low-ball price.
There is nothing more I love than screwing with mindless and especially invasive algorithms.
