Default Orbitz is Playing Dirty

You can get around it if you rank by price, but should you really have to do this? I agree with <a href="http://www.loopinsight.com/2012/06/26/orbitz-shows-mac-users-more-expensive-hotels/" target="_blank">The Loop</a> when they suggest the best solution is just not use Orbitz!</p>
