Furthermore, significant gender differences in computer acceptance were also found: (a) perceived usefulness will influence intention to use computers more strongly for females than males, (b) perceived ease of use will influence intention to use computers more strongly for females than males, and ( c) perceived ease of use will influence perceived usefulness more strongly for males than females.
The TAM posits that perceived ease of use of a technology (PEOU) and perceived usefulness (PU) determine a person's behavior towards the technology.
