8. Early in the week I read this CNN article which examines Why computer voices are mostly female. My favorite excerpt from the article?
“This may explain why in almost all GPS navigation systems on the market, the default voice is female. One notable exception has been Germany, where BMW was forced to recall a female-voiced navigation system on its 5 Series cars in the late 1990s after being flooded with calls from German men saying they refused to take directions from a woman.”
