A study conducted in this way could show that a box with custom "Atheist" label on the tape is treated differently than a normal box. Tons of people think this means bias towards atheists. If the study didn't start off with a confirmation bias, a different box would have had another, maybe "christian".
Otherwise this is just a study on adding extra designations to see if they affect the shipping in the US. Still an interesting experiment, but you have to realize what it is testing.
Besides, you're asking them to read an extra word. That is a built-in delay right there.
More people need to read this, more people need to boycott EA.
I was a huge mass effect/dead space fan, but I never have nor will I buy any game on Origin. Fortunately I can just borrow the game for the console, and then never get invested in another EA franchise again.

When I first started visiting as anonymous, people seemed to have trouble reading TFA, but at least would read the summary. What's next, are people going to start posting based on keywords in the title, without reading the whole title?
Apple has really gotten into everyone's heads. "You still have the older version of the OS? You must have vulnerabilities, then! You must upgrade to iOS5! Er, Android iOS5..." security patches are made through my Android even though I'm still on Gingerbread.
When it comes to Windows, everyone mods up using XP ten years later, but it's different with smartphones somehow? If there is a problem, it's not the lack of getting a new OS like many here have suggested (while that is frustrating it's not an option), it's the lack of pushing out security updates.
