Study Says 75% Of Women Don’t Know How To Use Gadgets
My fiance is going to kill me for publishing this, but she is one of the 75%. When she turns on the computer, I get nothing but questions. The Xbox 360 was an alien device to her until I showed her Zuma, and now I can’t get her off of it, but the truth remains, she just does not care enough about technology to learn it, and thus does not know how to use most of even what I consider simple gadgets.
From Gizmodo’s look at the Study:
The UK electronics retailer Comet performed a study on 1000 customers to justify their new “Gadget Angels” teamâ??think Geek Squad in the Best Buys here. Their study concluded that 75% of women don’t really know what they’re doing when it comes to mobile gadgets.
The study says these women only know how to handle the basic functions of a phone, like making calls and using an address book. They also are confused by cameras and MP3 players, and 7/10 of them ask their partners or children to show them how to do stuff like download music to their devices.
Anyone else dealing with a technologically inept woman? Or are there any female readers that would like to stand up and show us that they are part of the 25%? There is nothing more attractive to a geeky guy then a girl that knows technology.
