My daughter likes knowing the ins and outs of her phone and would rather I show her how to do it than brush her off or do it for her. She's used my d80, has her own digital camera, has had a flipcam for 4 or 5 years now (but prefers to use my zi8), carries around my "purse dell", has my hand-me-down Aluratek eReader and has been hinting that she wants an iPad. Her phone, Nintendo DS, and/or an old-fashioned book are *always* with her. She's recently started carrying a purse for all of these items. My son... does not take after me nor Bio Dad. Let's just leave it at that.
I don't think that this is truly saying that moms are more tech-savvy, but, we certainly know how to use the tool to connect to the communities that matter to us.
