Women And Tech: Parodies And Realities

Women and technology is always a tender subject. Some women (and men) couldn't give a hoot about the newest downloads or gizmos, but the rest of us - specifically you readers - use technology everyday and have most of the same usage and buying habits as your male peers. We use technology to make our lives easier. We carry Smartphones, MP3 players and handhelds, use widgets, install special plug-ins and buy gadgets that fit into and enhance our digital lifestyles.

The New York Times reminds us that the idea of making gadgets female friendly has evolved a lot more than the average consumer might think in the past few years. More women are taking control of the technology they bring into their homes and lives and using that technology more often. Still, women are easy targets when it comes to parody gadgets and some manufacturers still think sprinkling a little pink on MP3 players and TVs will make women love them. So what's a girl to do?

I've compiled a list of my favorite (and least favorite) tech parodies and bizarre gadgets aimed at women, as well as a few recent articles on women and technology. My question is this: Why are women still easy targets when it comes to technology and do you think the robot that cleans your lady business is funny?

It drives me insane that companies think that "marketing to women" means making a computer pink.

Some of the items are kind of cool but a lot of them, I don't know, just seem too cheesy and stereotyped.
