  not really -- it has legal repercussions to quote prices in publicly
  available material, _and_ several companies that advertise on the Net and
  elsewhere would rather you call them based on product interest rather
  than price.

  e.g., I still (occasionally) order pizza at special offer prices because
  they forgot to include important legal phrases like "prices subject to
  change without notice" and "offer valid through ..." on flyers that they
  left _millions_ of at the University of Oslo campus in the fall of 1988.
