Take our survey and enter for a chance to win an iPad

But the second part had some poor survey design choices. For example, after I indicated that I did not use any of the social networking sites/tools listed in response to one question, the next question was about how tech marketers could use social media to influence me. No way to indicate N/A or skip to the next question. There were other questions where I wish I could have selected Not Applicable but that was not an option.
Another question asked me about whether I had signed up for any of a long list of things (like downloading apps, podcasts, or e-letters) within the past 12 months. I had used many of those things on a regular basis -- but I did not *sign up* within the past 12 months. Was the survey measuring usage? or recent enrollment? Hard to tell.
I think results will be skewed if folks have to choose a wrong response instead of being able to skip a question. No ability to add comments or feedback at the end, either. Don't know whether the survey creators read these comments...

One serious fault with the survey (not already mentioned) is the lack of a back button.

I gave up after 10 mins. and only 16% complete.
I felt like I was taking a psychology exam, and you're gonna reveal my most inner thoughts towards my preference for Lays potato chips vs. Strawberry daiquiris. WTH?
Certainly not worth some RANDOM chance at winning an iPad (that I probably wouldn't win, anyway...) I've never really cared about the "prize inside" much... never figure I'm gonna win, anyway. So, really, just contributing to the cause.
But, this survey makes me wanna skip every subsequent survey coming from Macworld, ever again.
I'm exhausted now.
