In a finding that many have subliminally known about for years, but never been actually proven, yet is still quite shocking, the WSJ is reporting that tourism portal Orbitz "has found that people who use Apple Inc.'s Mac computers spend as much as 30% more a night on hotels, so the online travel agency is starting to show them different, and sometimes costlier, travel options than Windows visitors see.Of course, I have my own opinion on Orbitz.
But if it isn't them, it will be someone else. You see, I see you:
Note to Mac users: if you run a VMWare image on your Mac that has a Windows container, and use that to shop, I betcha that stupid Orbitz would give you a better price - because they're too stupid to figure out your cunning plan. But then, you're too smart to use Orbitz, right?
Note to Orbitz marketing droids: you sure bough yourself a bunch of bad PR here. And with me. That's a gift that will keep on giving. Love and kisses, Borepatch.
