I am still very much hung up on tiny laptops, and I guess I will never get over them. But while I have bubbled on and on about the three biggest newsmakers of this year, the eeePC, the OLPC and the Intel Classmate, let me get back to the mainstream market, and give you… My gurly tech salivations.
It’s about time I actually wrote on gurly geekiness, because I seem to have written on everything else but gadgets that gurls love. I’m not DummyGeekGURL if I didn’t love pink too much, right?
On that note, I guess it’s totally not an unfamiliar fact to you that women seem to love pinks, reds and purples too much. It’s actually a scientifically proven fact that women just gravitate to the red end of the spectrum.
Both men and women like blues, but more women like red and blue-red shades (purples).
And so, with that fact, the tech companies are actually capitalizing on biopsychology to create this barrage of girly gadgets.
As more women become tech-savvy due to the lowering of the so-called double standard and the peaking of women’s lib, companies are realizing that there is a need to cater to the fairer sex.
While I surely still abhor Hello Kitty, I must admit, I love pink gadgets.
From the Pink Sony Vaio, to the Pink Sony Digicam, I love most tech toys that are splashed with that hue of a blushing girl’s cheeks.
And while I’m at it, I would also like to state, that harlot reds are also my thing. Like this Sony Vaio laptop, same model, different hue, and the red Aiptek DV Cam. I want, I want, I want!
And I don’t know if it’s all about the connotation of purity, but it sure seems to me that white machines are selling like hotcakes among women, too. The MacBook, for one, probably owes its sales to women who want dainty-looking machines.
So I don’t know if it’s genetics, natural tendencies or what, but I tell you, I’m just salivating as I post this!
But while I wipe my drool of, you go and ponder on my post and make sure you clear your browser’s cookies, because after seeing these pics of to-die-for gurly geekiness, I’m sure your wife, girlfriend or partner… Probably even your mother may tug at your shirt sleeves for one of these!
