American shoppers naive about retail prices online...

| | |

This CNN story says that most American consumers don't realize Internet merchants and even traditional retailers sometimes charge different prices to different customers for the same products, according to a new survey The study, "Open to Exploitation," found nearly two-thirds of adult Internet users believed incorrectly it was illegal to charge different people different prices, a practice retailers call "price customization." More than two-thirds of people surveyed also said they believed online travel sites are required by law to offer the lowest airline prices possible. The study, expected to be released Wednesday by the Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania, is the latest to cast doubt on the notion of sophisticated consumers in the digital age. It said 87 percent of people strongly objected to the practice of online stores charging people different prices for the same products based on information collected about their shopping habits...

On fictional universes and the fans who rationalize them...

| | | | |

Todd Seavey's article says fans struggle to rationalize away the contradictions in our favorite fictional universes like Star Wars and Star Trek series. They tend to get very complex, and its complexity means that—inevitably—the occasional "continuity error" occurs. In normal movie parlance, a continuity error means one of those embarrassing moments when, say, the bandage on an actor moves from the right hand to the left hand between scenes due to a mistake by the makeup department. For science fiction fans, though, continuity refers to the overall logical and historical coherence of our beloved fictional universes.
