Seeking BlackBerry users for usage study

Hello,

 

I am a Ph.D. Candidate in the David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science at the University of Waterloo.  I am conducting a study to understand how BlackBerry users interact with their devices.

 

To participate in this study, you may load a simple application on to your BlackBerry smartphone.  This application runs as a background process that records when the device’s screen is turned on or off, and when the device is plugged into a power source for charging. The application is totally non-invasive and will not affect your use of the device.  You may withdraw from the study at any time by revoking your consent to participate in the study, or by uninstalling the application from your device.

 

Usage logs contain no personal or identifying information.

Thanks,

 

Earl

Re: Seeking BlackBerry users for usage study

I don't understand why this is being posted in each device model section. The one in the General Section would do fine, alone.

 

Quadruple posting like this doesn't make you friends and is considered akin to spamming a forum such as this.

 

One is enough.

Re: Seeking BlackBerry users for usage study

Hello JSanders,

 

I posted to the four forums (three most active + general) to reach the widest audience as possible.  I did get permission from RIM directly to do so.  Within 10 minutes, I've already got an enthousiastic reponse from the BlackBerry community!

 

Cheers, 

 

Earl

Re: Seeking BlackBerry users for usage study

Regardless, it is not good forum etiquette.

 

And you and I both know, now, there is more to this than meets the eye. 

 


Right?
