Internet different for men and women

Men Are From Google, Women Are From Yahoo
On the Internet, as in life, men and women have different motivations for doing
what they do. According to a recent report from Pew Internet and American Life,
women view the Internet as a place to extend, support, and nurture relationships
and communities. Men tend to see it as an office, a library, or a playground--screw the community, this is about function not family.

I have not seen this difference in use of searchd engines at school. Other stats and observations are interesting.

Isn't it interesting the way that our society, without thinking, brings up females and males differently and despite many of the evolutionary reasons for this difference having gone - we still do it?
