Is it that important for a guy to have a stylish vacuum cleaner? It is apparently if you are a techno-sexual.
Ricky Montalvo is a techno-sexual who will help you get chic from your coffeepot to your stereo system.
Montalvo leads a team of Silicon Valley Tech workers who started the techno-sexual movement.
They say it is about style, culture and, of course, a lot of technology.
"You know, back in the day a woman wanted a guy who can change the oil, rake the leaves, and clean the rain gutters. We're saying the new ideal male is a guy who can set up her wireless DSL configuration at her home," Montalvo said.
But can a cell phone or a television set really impress that special someone in our lives?
And what about cost? An iPod, a moving TV, all those speakers. It sounds expensive to be a techno-sexual.
"You know, guys don't have accessories like purses and jewelry, and don't spend money on makeup, so why not spend it on cell phones and cool messenger bags and watches," Montalvo says.
Montalvo started the movement just five months ago. He says since then, techno-sexuals from all over the world are now contacting him. They ask about shopping advice and find a brotherhood of gadget geeks.
I'm all about gadgets and such, but this just screams "NERDS!" to me.
I'm dead technosexy, baby!
I was going to say that dexterous use of an Osculator would suffice.
The only ones who get a kick out of my computer knowledge are my mom and dad, and that ain't sexy.
You violated one of the cardinal rules of techno-sexuality: Never give your parents a computer unless you're prepared to become their perpetual help desk -- 'til death do you part. Just buy yourself a "cool messenger bag" and hope someone someone doesn't beat you up because they think you're gay.
I thought this was high school boys making female robots.
Still it's amazing how good a job you'll do when it's for a pretty woman who's batting her eyes at you.
Heck, I can do both. HIDE YOUR WOMEN FROM ME folks, HIDE EM! :)
Aw jeez, by the title, I thought they were talking about those geeks that have that "Sybian Love Machine" website.
Ping list for the discussion of the politics and social aspects that directly effects Gen-Reagan/Generation-X (Those born from 1965-1981) including all the spending previous generations (i.e. The Baby Boomers) are doing that Gen-X and Y will end up paying for.

Please make sure there is fresh coffee in the meeting room for me as I conduct the company's earnings call. As CEO, I like fresh coffee.
I have a small travel alarm clock that you can set to vibrate instead of audio alarm. Not quite sure what the point is, but I'm taking it with me next week on my trip to Pennsylvania. I'll be sure to let you know what I discover.
And it never really came to pass, did it? :/
ping for my boyfriend ;-)
He does that computer stuff, but we both don't go for cell phones and beepers. We HATE them and how pretentiously rude people are w/them. Would be a definite turn-off for me!!!
Geeks are sexy!
Well, some of them are. And they make very good husbands, according to every woman I know who's married one.
