    This post hasn’t drawn comments so I don’t know if there is any interest here. But there are now several additional stories/references on the topic. Forbes had a late March column by Adam Tanner on the subject at http://www.forbes.com/sites/adamtanner/2014/03/26/different-customers-different-prices-thanks-to-big-data/. And the FTC’s recent workshop had a presentation by Ashkan Soltani with his research on differential pricing. The FTC event’s video is at http://www.ftc.gov/news-events/audio-video/video/spring-privacy-series-alternative-scoring-products, and Soltani’s slides are at http://www.ftc.gov/system/files/documents/public_events/182261/alternative-scoring-products_webcast-slides.pdf. Just keep going through the PPT until you hit his materials.
