When Valkee was awarded the HuuHaa- (Humbug-) Prize in Dec 2012, the company reacted with a stream of apologetic press releases and the announcement of a public test. The result was presented in February 2013 on Valkee’s website:
Why would 69% of users possibly recommend the scam device to others? The answer is utterly simple: The company chose the participants, which had to apply (!) for participation.
So apply … ps. the chosen get bright light earbuds, to own them forever…
What results could we expect?
Strangely, with the launch of the Valkee-2 device, there appeared a 87% recommendation rate, allegedly from an user survey done in February 2013 by “Apex Healthcare Consulting”.
Just for the case that anyone really thought that’s a reliable number.
