    So I'm taking this technology survey by Nielsen. As a contrarian wp enthusiast, I jumped at the chance to have my(our) point of view heard. As I'm taking this survey and at about an hour of time = 60% done, I have already reasoned that this survey is a little out of the times. Some examples:
    - in the question about mp3 players, it mentions the Creative Zen Vision M, Rio
    - in numerous questions about social media it mentions myspace, which I guess does technically still exist...
    - and finally...

    I'm on a question that asks which of the following search sites I have used in the last 30 days and it has

    Ask
    Citysearch
    Comcast
    Google
    My Web Search ??
    Superpages.com
    WebCrawler (yes, really)
    Whitepages
    Wikipedia
    Yellowpages
    other

    How long has Bing been around? It's so hard to believe that 1 - Nielsen would put out a poll that's this dated and 2 - they have never heard of Bing?

    Are you sure this is a legitimate survey? Not spam related or anything?

    Well, if it is its just one more reason why most research surveys are biased and inaccurate. The winner will obviously be Google and then the headlines will read, "...A new survey says that 98% of households use Google..."

    Write them back and explain there survey is flawed. Though Bing is nowhere near as utilized as Google they are much bigger than any other source listed. There is obvious bias or negligence
    happening.

    Or even Yahoo, which is powered by Bing, and the original Web Index, before search engine was even a thing.
