The Megapram

Baby tech, in general, has been optimized for women. Diaper bags often feature floral designs. Burping cloths tend toward the pastel. The aesthetic assumption of most infant-care devices is that even the things that could be done by either parent will be done, ultimately, by women. Products’ appearance subtly tells men, “Sorry, guys, this is not for you.”

Not the Megapram, though!

(You’ll just have to read it.)

Congratulations to Melissa Mayer

The new CEO of Yahoo has given birth to a boy and named him Bogue. She plans to work from home throughout her maternity leave.

Correction I misread the linked article. Mayer has not yet named her baby; Bogue is the surname of Mayer’s husband.
