Priceline.com, an online business that lets travelers propose their own prices for airline seats, has a new hotel-booking service with a glut of lower-priced Orange County lodging. Travelers bid over the Internet on two- to five-star rooms without knowing the names of hotels. If a hotel agrees to a rate and date, the room is booked. Rooms that otherwise would sit empty can be filled at cut rates without hotels having to post prices publicly, Priceline spokesman Brian Ek said.

And how many tourists must be circumnavigated as they sit or lie on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for a photo opportunity with a favorite star?
