Internships are usually in the summer, when school's not in session. What are you supposed to do if there are no relevant internships near you, and you've been accepted to one that's too far away to commute?
That's so true. Meanwhile, the less well-off are working regular jobs every summer to pay for school, and reducing their chances of success in their field. Pretty damn hard to get a decent job now without an internship in your history.
There was an electronics store that really did something like that. Think it was Best Buy.
They'd show customers the prices of certain products on their websites, only it would be a different version of the site with higher prices. All to convince the customer to buy the product in-store instead.
Wasn't on a mobile phone, it was on their store computers. Still, pretty similar.
Exactly. Especially with smartphone features like the Amazon.com app, where you can scan a UPC or take a picture of a product, and it shows you Amazon's (almost definitely lower) price for the same product.
