    Would love some tips (if any) on how to beat algorithms.

  4. Thank you for this informative video.

  5. also what type of computer you are searching from… a PC or a Mac

  6. Wow! way to just tell us about a thing and that we can^t do anything about it

    Useless Consumer Reports….what else is new !

  7. Dynamic pricing doesn’t feel fair, either. Given a price, I ought to have some reasonable time to research it, compare, discuss with others on the trip, etc. We don’t see supermarkets adjusting prices every 15 minutes. If I’m shopping at a store but decide to go eat before I make a purchase and have to carry it around, I expect the price to be the same when I get back after my meal.

    Just because they can adjust prices every 15 minutes doesn’t mean it’s ok.
