Tech gender gap closes as women take control of gadgets

Once it seemed that only fellas would bamboozle you with talk of their hard drives, processors, operating system and number of mega-pixels. But now it seems that women are just as comfortable with tech-talk.

According to a survey commissioned by electric retailer, Comet, the gap between the sexes – at least as far as tech is concerned has closed with 48 per cent of women now feeling more comfortable with technology compared with 47 per cent of men.

Indeed only 15 per cent would now describe themselves as the tech-head of the household with 13% per cent even admitting to turning to their partner for advice on setting up and operating new technology.
