On it's website, online travel agency Orbitz claims that it wants to be your best source for cheap travel rates on plane tickets, rentals and even cheap hotels. However, according to reports, the site's cheap rates depend on the type of computer you use.
Orbitz found that people who use Apple Mac computer spend as much as 30 to 40 percent more a night on hotels, as opposed to people who use PCs. According to the Wall Street Journal, the company has started to use that information to predict a customer's spending habits.
The Journal claims that Orbitz shows Mac users different, more expensive rooms on their site. Soledad O'Brien and today's panelists discuss the practice on Starting Point today.
