A “news report” on the KELO website says that women are outspending men on tech gadgets.
Women have crossed the digital divide that once separated them from the male-dominated world of technology. Last year, women spent fourteen percent more than men on electronics.
Now whether that is related to the reasons outlined in the article, or due to women buying tech toys for the boys in their lives is anybody’s guess. Gee, maybe the reason they buy more is that when a gadget stops working, they tend to throw it away and buy new instead of dealing with fixing it. If the way the women in my life handle things technical is at all indicative of the population in general, I’d say that’d be it.
