THIS RESULT SURPRISED ME
I was surprised by the result of Thursday’s question. 56% said they would rather they never be able to use a touchscreen again. I understand the gaming comments. However I would give up a mouse and keyboard every time over a touchscreen.
I secretly want to try and just do everything on a touchscreen and see how easily I can adapt. I have done spreadsheets on a touchscreen and while not ideal the interfaces are getting more touch friendly.
I would have thought all the advantages you get from a touchscreen would have outweighed the drawbacks but no. Especially since the demographic of our users is younger.
Did it surprise you? Tweet me and let me know.
YOUR COMMENT OF THE DAY
“This is a pretty male centric option choice. I cut my hair once a year.”

You are totally right it is. Sorry about that. I really try to think about these questions from both a male and female perspective but sometimes I do a poor job. Thanks for calling me out. It helps me get better.
BONUS QUOTE (Just because I thought it was timely)
“I was having my hair cut as I was answering this question. Haha!!”

All the best,
JULY 2017 GAME FORMAT
You vote each day. The questions will open at 10 am est and close the next day at 10 am est.
You will have 2 ways to win.
- #DailyPrize — Each day I will select somebody who voted the previous day. They will have a chance to win up to $5. $3 for voting + $1 if they answered in the majority + $1 if they referred another player at any time in the past. I announce the #DailyPrize by noon est. If you want to hear it first follow Crowdini on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and/or Snapchat. Otherwise it will be posted in the next day’s email. Of course the winner will be notified via email immediately upon selection. NEW: The #DailyPrize winner will have 72 hours to claim the daily prize or the cash goes into the Game Prize pot.
- #GamePrize — You will also be playing for points. The points system will be based on the percentage of votes the answer you chose receives. If the answer you chose received 32% of the vote, you receive 32 points for that day. At the end of the game the player with the most points will win whatever cash wasn’t claimed by the daily winners.
- #GamePrize winner will also receive a custom 12"x12" face portrait painting of the pro athlete they choose. This is from Jeffrey Wong. It retails for $400.
**You can also receive up to 25 points this game for referrals. I give 5 points per referral. You can always refer more which I would appreciate but you will only get counted for up to 5 this game.
I have budgeted $5 a day for prizes. (That number will go up as we get more players. So refer your friends if you want the prizes to get better. :)
The game starts today, July 6th, and goes through July 31. That is 26 days. 26 x $5 = $130.
I will still give out the #DailyPrize up to $5. However any of that $5 that is left over goes into the pot for the #GamePrize.
In this daily email I will update each day what the #GamePrize cash amount is currently along with announcing the #DailyPrize winner.
