How is it that 500 steps for 8 days a month is considered an incentive goal?

I am not going to turn down $5 per month of easy money, but accomplishing 500 steps for 8 days a month is no incentive to be active. I rack up 500 steps just getting dressed and preparing breakfast. Sitting on the couch watching TV will total up 3,000 steps in a day just getting up occasionally to get a snack. If the Go365 program truly wants to help people get active it needs to set a higher daily bar -- say 10,000 steps or 45 minutes of exercise that achieves a heart rate in the 60% to 70% zone. All this could be gleaned from the tracker interface just like the paltry 500 steps. As it stands now the Go365 program is pretty much useless.
