Michael Brook, of Stuff, a UK gadget magazine that has a 95 per cent male readership, says that most women are attracted only to new bits of technology that look nice and A22 a purpose. ‘Traditionally, technology is a male environment,’ he says. ‘Women are less patient than men: they haven’t got the time or the inclination to read a 90-page manual and A23 out how to operate a camera or DVD player. They want instant gratification - simple, user-friendly, intuitive technology that they can take out of the box and use immediately. They A24 interest if it doesn’t work immediately, whereas men view learning how to use a new gadget as a challenge. It’s that whole tradition of taking something to pieces to see how it works.’

Tom Stewart, a psychologist agrees. ‘Women are often discouraged from learning about technology,’ he says. ‘They are conditioned by society to want to be seen as different from men. Building Meccano bridges and putting together model aeroplanes teaches boys to enjoy tinkering with things, but girls are encouraged to play with dolls A25 . This makes them more interested in relationships and how people behave, so they focus on the usefulness of a gadget, not on how it works.’

Some manufacturers are determined to turn women on to gadgets by combining style with function and making their technology more user-friendly. But Editorial Director Lucy Dobbs thinks that no A26 how user-friendly technology becomes, she won’t be able to shake off her laziness. ‘If I’m honest, most of the time I deliberately A27 helpless because I always know there will be someone who can help me, whether it’s my husband or a male colleague at work.’ ‘It’s easy for women to say they don’t understand and ask a man for help,’ says Tom Stewart. ‘As the saying A28 , boys play with toys, and girls play with boys.'
