Did you know that Amazon.com
charges you different prices for the same goods depending on who you are (and what your browser cookie shows?) This was news to me, but the WaPo
reported it in 2005.
Some call it "price-customization" or "dynamic pricing;" others call it "price discrimination
." The rest of us just want to know how to evade it.
