I don’t know why you wouldn’t want to get Jenny the bloggess to join in your focus group or write a review of your product? Seriously. She’s done a few of these and they generally start with her telling the companies they are nutz asking her, but Jenny gets the word out. She’s reviewed some online card company where you can create your own messages, the Wii Fit and now the Google Andoid phone.
Her irreverent observations point out flaws in marketing and usability while entertaining her readers. Sure, you can go to places like CNET for actual, factual writeups that describe features, pricing and stuff like that, but I bet they never tried to take their Google phone apart looking for the positronic brain inside. The geek in me wishes she found one.
