Annually we celebrate women’s day here in Iceland. And since this event is today I’ll dedicate this post to all my female counterparts out there that just love their gadgets.

For the longest time the gadget market, be it laptops, mobile phones, PDA’s, digital watches or what have you, were dominated by black and gray things. They included an uncountable number of features and truth be told weren’t much for the eye. Some might say quite masculine.

Then market research showed that the majority of gadgets were being bought by women, and they tended to influence what was being bought for the home as well. What was more, they tended to focus on practical, functional and simple to use.

Producers of high-tech gadgetry having discovered that they had been ignoring around half of their buyer base came up with the great and simple solution: Just spray it pink. Shortly afterwards they decided that they needed to address this market segment especially and came up with calorie counters and period reminders. Thankfully this phase has passed and you can now find both tasteful, practical gadgets that are not overloaded with useless features.

Girls, for the latest in gadgetry, you should follow what’s happening here:

    Hello, I’m Jordyn Livingston.
    Welcome to my about page. I started writing in high school after a creative writing assignment for my English teacher. I did creative writing for a while before I thought about doing something else.
    I had always loved doing research assignments because I’m passionate about learning. When you combine writing skill with a love of learning, research paper writing only makes sense as a job.
    I’m passionate about assisting the students of the future in their school career. When they don’t like their assignment , I am there to help.
