Computer Gender
Why computers should be considered masculine:
They have a lot of data, but are still clueless.

They are supposed to help you solve your problems, but half the time they are the problem.

As soon as you commit to one, you realize that if you had waited a little longer, you could have had a better model.


Why computers should be considered feminine:

No one but their creators understand their internal logic.

Even your smallest mistakes are stored in long-term memory for later retrieval.

As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your paycheck on accessories for it.
