How do you become a Beta Tester for software or hardware?

The first question is "Why would anyone want to be a Beta tester?"

The hardware or software has problems, and you have to spend time finding, reporting and resolving issues. Sometimes it takes a whole bunch of your time. It also takes away from your personal time, that and you can't make any real money doing it. Then, in most cases, you can't even tell anyone you are a tester.

So why is it that when a company that puts out a beta test tons of people clamor to become testers?

Help customize your own community site

I blog on new and interesting things in the technology world. But I would be remiss in not talking about this site you are on right now. The setup they use is, IMHO, one of the more advanced places where you can interact with others and gain information. On this site there is alot of talk about new gadgets and toys. There is also tons of questions and good answers.

But, wouldn't it be sweet if you could go to a community site, find articles, blogs and forums that not only have items you like to read, but also has articles and blogs that pertain to what you want to see, not what the site's author's or advertisers want you to read? Then put these importamt articles on the front page. Not buried under a ton of uninteresting stuff.
