Men are better at shopping than women  

275x250.jpgIt’s official, men make better shoppers than women, according to a new study.
 
Although women go on more shopping trips and spend longer trawling the stores than men, they are most likely to go home empty handed.
 
The average women spends almost seven hours a month shopping but more than 81 per cent say they often end up going home with things they had no intention of buying instead of what they were actually looking for.
 
But guys spend just five hours a month walking around the shops, with almost a third saying they always find what they were searching for.
 
However, that could be because they realise the football is about to begin so they just grab the nearest pair of jeans and get out of there.

Women getting better with gadgets than men

275x250.jpgIt's increasingly becoming women who do most of the technological household chores like tuning a TV or setting up a laptop computer, a study has found.

Whilst traditionally men may have taken charge of gadgets and gizmos, women are now becoming more comfortable with tech.

In a survey by Comet, most women said they would happily set up their laptop or freeview box - and only 4% are daunted by installing their own HDTV and 7% a surround sound system.

Half of women also claim they now rely on the latest gadgets like an iPhone or Sky HD to make their lives tic.

13% of the men questioned even confessed they let their wives and girlfriends pick the household computers, DVD players, and televisions… proving they are not really men.
