This thread kind of reminded me about this article: Technology - Alexis Madrigal - Sorry, Young Man, You're Not the Most Important Demographic in Tech - The Atlantic

Sit with this for a minute. Let me break out the categories where women are leading tech adoption: Internet usage Mobile phone voice usage Mobile phone location-based services Text messaging Skype Every social networking site aside from LinkedIn All Internet-enabled devices E-readers Health-care devices GPS
Consumers like those who use this forum used to drive tech; no longer. I see Windows 8 as a reflection of this. I don't like Metro, nor do I like OSX or iOS. I really don't care for Android either. Don't get me started about Gnome 3. This happens to pretty much everything I enjoy. Once an interest becomes mainstream, it turns to crap most of the time.
