Study reveals gender divide in use of new media

After one of the most comprehensive studies of the effect on children of the explosion in media choices of the past 15 years, the regulator Ofcom said girls aged 12 to 15 are more likely than boys to have a mobile phone, use the internet, listen to the radio and read newspapers or magazines. Only when it comes to playing computer and console games do boys overtake girls.

That's because all girls that age -- and i guess a lot of women, too -- want to do is run their mouth off, and the magazines help them to do it (gossip) through their phones and the 'Net. I hope the article doesn't overlook this, and try to make girls seem like they're somehow super socially and economically aware.
