A new study proves that women who don't seem to know much about cars are quoted higher prices for automobile repair than men. But women calling about the hypothetical repair who "indicate they have done research online and know the market rate to replace the radiator" got the same price as men.
Why shouldn't "plus size" ladies have the same cute clothes as non-plus-size ladies? There is no reason, that's why. "According to the CDC, the average American woman is 5 foot 4, 167 pounds, and has a 37-inch waist—roughly a size 14. Yet most designer styles top out around size 12," Laura Beck writes on Jezebel.
Evernote offers a pretty excellent family of products. Even as a woman*, I can affirm this. Skitch, in particular, is a personal favorite. You'll see us use Skitch on photos in posts here on Gizmodo pretty regularly.
There are now two female staffers writing for Gizmodo, myself and Leslie Horn, and neither of us blew anyone for our job.
Birchbox! You are not making this very easy! I want to love you, I mostly do, but then you go and say something completely asinine about the quality of a product being of lesser importance than how cute it is, and I just can't.
Back in April, I wrote one of my first-ever Gizmodo posts, a rant about the monthly mail-order grooming service Birchbox and how their male/female skewed boxes tended to reinforce gender constructs in a pretty annoying way.
Come on. Did anyone actually think this video—which looks convincingly like an outtake from any CoverGirl commercial ever—could possibly work to encourage women to pursue careers in science? Really?

Awkwardly-coiffed magician Penn Jillette is an inventor. His greatest triumph: a "hydro-therapeutic stimulator" for women with jetstreams directed to "stimulation points (e.g., the clitoris) of the female user when the female user sits in the seat." Meet the Jill-Jet.

Sometimes, you just want to practice your putting. If you're near a woman wearing Triumph's new golf outfit, and you can convince her to take it off, you can putt to your heart's content.
Nothing gets my blood pumping like a sexy lady wearing a skimpy outfit that glows in the dark. Well, I guess the glowing in the dark thing isn't necessary, but if it's part of the package, go nuts, I guess.
Hello all. It's been a while. After traveling, family visits, technical difficulties, and paid work I am finally glad to bring you a new video, and this ain't no trailer.
Electronic musician/producer Calvin Harris recreated his newest single, "Ready for the Weekend," by using conductive ink painted on the hands of 15 girls in bikinis. We, of course, post it in the interest of sharing this cool ink technology.
This here is the Jalou, Sony Ericsson's newest ladyphone. On the surface, it's a boldly-styled, reasonably-specced feature phone. But it she is so much more than that!
Being unable to sleep because my boobs are too big is a problem I have never had. But I'm sympathetic, oh so sympathetic.
These Body Speakers, designed by Bob Turek, are the perfect addition to any complete creepbag's home theater setup. If you're looking to scare away any and all women and even make dudes uncomfortable, look no further.
