View Full Version : University Project - Apple survey

September 28th, 2012, 09:09 PM

I'm a student at Stockholm University and we're writing an essay about peoples opinions about Apple. We're looking for participants with different computing backgounds, so we would appreciate if you have time to answer 10 easy questions, you will remain anonymous.


Thank you for your help :)

From the forum code of conduct:

Please do not post your homework assignments expecting someone else to do it for you. Any such threads will be taken offline and warnings or infractions may be issued.

After some feedback from other forum staff, I've re-opened your thread.

To add what to lisati said, I moved the thread to the Cafe, as it isn't a support question.

Took your survey, but it seemed as if it was aimed directly at Apple owners.

The questions are too biased towards Apple products. If it's for a University project, I'd think of less biased questions, instead of making the survey about Apple specifically, maybe make it about tech devices in general. Or if you want to compare preferences for brands, come up with more generalized questions that compare HOW people shop and decide on certain brands.

The wording of your survey is such that your result will be biased, and probably won't give an accurate market opinion.

Also the survey assumes that you answer yes for the "Have you considered purchasing an Apple product in the future?" question.

Your survey's:

a) Broken. When I submit my results I get "We hit an unexpected snag".

b) Partly in (German?) some other language than English. "Klar?".

Just sayin'. :)

You are in the wrong place, asking for opinion of Apple in a Linux forum :)

I think there's a good number of people here who have iphones or ipods.
But to be fair, this poll should probably be asked in all three forums. MS forums, Linux, Apple.

If someone posts this only on apple fans forums, the results will obviously be biased

I agree. I have no interest in Apple and was very disappointed in the survey.

If you don't like surveys about Apple, dont take the survey
If you don't like surveys' dont take the survey
If you have an issue with Apple, take it elsewhere this thread is not about that.
