A recent survey by Swedish computer magazine PC för Alla, (PC for Everyone) reportedly found that women get more frustrated than men over just about every aspect of computers and using the Web. While many women could say they find men more frustrating than computers, since we don’t speak Swedish its unclear whether the magazine included that question.
Here’s Pingdom’s breakdown of the survey results: While only 56% of men are frustrated by slow loading Web pages, 66% of Swedish women find this frustrating. Only 47% of Swedish men find ads on the Internet frustrating, but 52% of women are frustrated by Web ads. 85% of women surveyed were frustrated when their computer crashed, while only 77% of calm, cool collected menfolk find this same situation aggravating. And watch out, when broadband connections don’t reach promised speeds, 56% of women are frustrated, while only 48% of men are.
Pingdom brought up this point: why aren’t 100% of people frustrated when their computer crashes? Yeah, why aren’t they?
