Making Travel Arrangements

       "Here is an interesting observation on Mac users' choice of travel arrangements via Orbitz," David Passell notices.  "Either they think Mac users are stupid, or we just have better taste."  Might make for an interesting conversation with David.
        Here Jim Hamm jumps in and labels it correctly; it's "data mining" and it results in the Mac user being steered to a more expensive hotel.  This is what Wall Street Journal has to say.  Jim closes with, "I can't make up my mind whether to be 'ticked off' about this, or smugly smile and say, well, Orbitz does recognize 'Creme de la Creme'. . . (grin)."
