retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Reuters reports that the Pew Research Center's Internet and American Life Project is out with a new study saying that "about 37 percent of Americans ages 12 to 17 tap the Internet using a smartphone, up sharply (from 23 percent) in just a year."

According to the story, "About three in four teenagers, or 74 percent, say they access the Internet on cell phones, tablets and other mobile devices at least occasionally.
The survey showed that 93 percent of teenagers have a computer or have access to one at home ... But 30 percent of teens living in households earning less than $30,000 a year mostly access the Internet using cell phones. The percentage is higher than for teens in households earning more than $50,000."
