Comment surveys (Score 2, Insightful) 412

Not that I disagree with the assessment that nobody wants a $500 phone, but does anyone else really doubt how accurate these online marketing surveys are? To qualify (and get paid) you usually have to answer a question like the following one from a survey to gather information about enterprise class printers:

How many people work in your company worldwide?

  • 1
  • 2-5
  • 6-15
  • 16-100
  • 101-10000
Well, you know that if you don't answer with the last one, you don't get to participate or get paid. You know that people lie their asses off.

Nobody said computers were going to be polite.
