After all, what would a woman want with a computer? You can't cook with it, and you can't shop with it (yet). If so many women are using computers, then how are computer makers going to hawk the devices to them? As fashion accessories, silly! How else?
Following the auto industry down the same Neanderthal path, Samsung executives seem to have come to the conclusion that women might plunk down for a computer if only it matched their shade of lipstick.

Still, there's the problem of what to do on the weekend. According to Vogue, you can throw on comfy clothes such as skin-tight pants, high-heeled boots, and puffy gray jackets (did she say comfy?) and log on to the Net without leaving the house.

The opening act
Oddly enough, the women we interviewed weren't offended by the condescending tone of it all, seeming instead to stare in awe while dreaming of looking half as good.
Apparently, our crew were the only spectators laughing. The Vogue and Saks people seemed to take pride in their new discovery that women actually use computers, and they can't wait to launch their new spring lines.
Does this mean pink PCs are on the horizon? Nah...probably just a passing fashion. Might break a nail.
