The Remote Challenge

Posted on Oct 14th, 2008 by Nate Bolt

Take the Remote Challenge!
Are you still testing users in a lab? Sign up for your first remote study with B|P, and if you don’t like it better than the lab, we’ll give you your money back – seriously. How serious, you ask? Up to $30k serious. (Some restrictions apply, of course, but it’s on the honor system, so go here to take the challenge.)

“Lab testing is soooo last year…”
– Brian Beaver, Director, Creative Services / Sony Electronics, Inc.

“Lab testing is like pornography —
bad lighting, awkward, and much about it is fake. Remote testing is messy, real, and honest, just like getting it on.”
– Peter Merholtz, President, Adaptive Path

“Lab testing is cool if you like to waste money
and eat M&Ms. Remote testing is cool if you actually want to know what your users think.”
– Maya Pacheco, Senior Product Manager,

    Do you have a spam problem on this blog; I also am a blogger, and I was curious about your situation; many of us have developed some nice procedures and we are looking to swap techniques with others, why not shoot me an e-mail if interested.

  2. Hey there just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading properly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show the same results.

  3. Greetings from Colorado! I’m bored to tears at work so I decided to browse your site on my iphone during lunch break. I enjoy the information you present here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m surprised at how fast your blog loaded on my mobile .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, amazing blog!

    Nice shoes I bought these shoes for my wife and I for running and other outdoor activities because I naturally run up on my forefoot and I hate wearing shoes with all of the extra padding that only adds bulk. We have had them for several months now and I no longer get shin splints when I run and locate that I like walking about barefoot (real barefoot) much a lot more now. Go simple when you…

  6. Hey i have an old xp computer ant want to make it a client of my newer vista home premium computer. I hear that there is a program out there that when u boot up the (client computer) u come straight to the welcome screen on the base computer (the one with vista on it) some how they are connected threw the network. Any ideas?.

  7. At this time it appears like WordPress is the preferred blogging platform out there right now.
    (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

  8. Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The text in your article seem to be running off the
    screen in Opera. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility
    but I figured I’d post to let you know. The design and style look
    great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon. Kudos
