ARE COMPUTERS MALE OR FEMALE
Two groups of computer experts (one male and the other female) were asked to recommend whether computers should be referred to as male or female, and to give four reasons for their choice.
The group of women reported that the computers should be referred to in the male gender because:
1.In order to get their attention, you have to turn them on.
2.They have a lot of data, but are still clueless.
3.They are supposed to help you solve problems, but half the time they are the problem.
- As soon as you commit to one, you realise that, if you had waited a little longer you could have had a better model.
The men, on the other hand, concluded that computers should be referred to in the feminine gender because:
1.No one but the Creator understands their internal logic.
2.The language they use to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to everyone else.
3.Even your smallest mistakes are stored in the long term memory for later retrieval.
- As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your pay-cheque on accessories for it.
