[quote:Anon1578 21952662:MV8xODQxNDEzXzMyODIzODY2XzFBMjA1MzhB] It's completely legit. They send you the most expensive top of the line wireless router (retail value $400) and send you $150 just for installing it. Every month they send you a check based upon your usage. The more information they receive, the bigger the check (up a certain amount). It's simply a survey system that makes it easier for them to calculate data and advertising optimization. Google is asking this company to do the research for them so they can use this with their future products (i.e. Google TV). They're basically lining up to compete with apple and it's product Apple TV. It's always good to be skeptical about "Free" money but some of you take it too seriously. What you don't realize is that most of you have Facebook accounts and facebook has been doing this since 2006. How do I know, you might ask? Look at the ads on your news feed. They are relevant to your "likes" and "dislikes" as well as your profile information. They have used what you've been looking at or your habits are and basing advertising around it. In the long run, they're paying you because you're making them A LOT of money. The data they give up is how much time the average person (based on the information you give them about yourself i.e. hispanic, white, 22yr, 38yr, employed, etc.) watches tv and what they are watching and when to maximize revnues or adjust pricing for shows and ads. It works, we've already made $500 from this in 2 months simply by clicking a button when I watch tv. And the devices they sent us are worth over $2,500 (3 Samsung Galaxy Players, one Cisco Wireless Router)that we keep after the survey. :) All for pushing a few buttons here and there. Fine by me if you ask :D :5a: [/quote]
I received this letter from a company that goes by the name of Screenwise Select, they want me to participate in a study they claim is going to record my internet usage through a special modem they will be sending me upon accepting to participate in their study. This company goes by the name of GfK and say that they will be conducting this study on behalf of Google.
On top of all that, they send me a real $2 dollar bill (kinda bribing me in) and say how they will pay me $100.00 dollars the first month and $50 dollars every month after that! J
I find this extremely weird and what an invasion of privacy!!
I will take pictures of the letter and post them on a hosting site with links.
Also this J. Micheal Dennis, Ph.D seems to have signed the letter below... anyone have any dirt on this guy?
