Popgadget: Personal Tech for Women

While surfing for something completely unrelated to this post, I found this nifty webzine (it probably exists also on paper):Popgadget.

The zine, which is more blog-like than zine-like, touts itself as a technology magazine for women:

Technology magazines ignore women and women’s magazines ignore technology. Popgadget is a lifestyle magazine that embraces technology as a regular and essential part of women’s lives. We cover topics traditionally seen in women’s magazines, such as health and fitness, beauty and fashion, home, family, and entertainment, but with a unique focus on the products and people that bring exciting innovations to those aspects of our lives. But if you’re looking for a bikini-clad model straddling a Power Mac G5, you won’t see it here.

Yay! Gotta love it, even though some of those technological finds can be silly, like the purse with a flexible solar panel that can, it avers, recharge your cell phone. I really needed one of those, especially at $383US.

But there are also great posts such as how technology is “sold” differently to men and women, or this Holiday Gift Guide for Technophobes. I want one of those microwavable teddy bears.
