Why Are Guys So Into Gadgets?
from the chromosomally-challenged dept
Sure, sure, there have been studies that show that women actually do like gadgets, but it remains an area where men are clearly the primary consumer. A (female) reporter for the BBC explores why men dig gadgets so much more than women. There’s the evolutionary theory (survival of the fittest: more, better shiny gadgets let us men kill more animals and be the grand provider and protector). There’s also the distraction theory (gadgets are “are easier and less complicated to interact with than women”). In the end, though, like with all “battle of the sexes” questions, there really doesn’t seem to be a good answer.
