Techcrunch: Microsoft Looking for A Few Good iPad Users..To Study

http://techcrunch.com/2010/07/13/microsoft-ipad/

Quote:
Yes, Apple’s rival has created a Facebook event calling for iPad owners to come to Microsoft’s Redmond campus between July 16 and July 21 for a study. Specifically, it’s Microsoft’s User Research group and they want people for chunks of two hours to apparently survey how they use the device. A follow-up note indicates that it’s student iPad users that Microsoft is specifically interested in here.

Quote:
A “Microsoft gratuity item” is being offered in exchange for participating. Oh goody. Here’s to hoping it’s a Courier.
They gave me full 32bit/64bit versions of Vista Ultimate+Office for a study a few years ago...plus a tax form because it exceeded some limit for gratuities.

Their study gratuities are usually pretty good, and I've always had fun with that sort of thing. But no way do I count as a student.

Oh well. If you were going to Seattle, this would be the loveliest time of the year.

Maybe because their sweat glands had atrophied from lack of use.

Will Ballmer Behave?

So is Ballmer going to greet each person, take his/her iPad, throw it on the floor and stomp on it?

...since it was last SEPTEMBER since we'd seen a single day over 75 degrees...

Let me tell you though, people shut up fast when it rained again yesterday. We'll take the sun back, thank you very much! LOL

You probably get a free Kin phone from them (or two, or three, or a box ... Better than filling a landslide with these atrocities .....)
