Women increasingly choose technology over "girlie" things, according to a study released by Oxygen.

The study, entitled "Girls Gone Wired," is a comprehensive look at women and technology. It shows that women have closed the technology gap with men and are itching to purchase the latest technologies. In fact, 77% of women would prefer a plasma TV to a diamond solitaire, and 79% of the female market is interested in, and using, technology.

The study shatters the myth that only urban, trendsetting women are interested in technology. It also finally allows husbands and boyfriends the opportunity to purchase that flat screen for Valentine's Day. Electronics stores should stock up.
