Charlotte Firm Study Paying $75 To Know Your Computer, Tablet Habits

Some company out there wants to know more about you and your 8-12 year old child’s tablet/smartphone/computer use and Accelerant Research apparently has been hired to find out more.

Gee, wonder what kind of outfits want to know that kind of data?

I found it kind of amusing the author didn’t bother to fill in the name of the person they were soliciting to in their email. See below
