  • Study: Home Depot shows smartphone users more expensive items online

    Atlanta Business Chronicle - 10/24/2014

    Atlanta-based Home Depot Inc., for example, shows mobile-device users products that are roughly $100 more expensive than those offered to desktop-computer users, according to a Wall Street Journal report on the study.
