The State Of Consumers And Technology: Benchmark 2009, US

A Life Stage Analysis Of The US Benchmark Survey

Why Read This Report

This report is a graphical analysis of Forrester's North American Technographics® Benchmark Survey, 2009. It provides an overview of US consumers' demographics, behaviors, and technology attitudes by life stage. The document includes five-year forecasts on the technology adoption of PCs, Internet, broadband, high-definition televisions (HDTVs), home networks, and DVRs. Highlights from the consumer data show that HDTVs and home networks are the two fastest-growing technologies in 2008; that media consumption is split evenly between traditional and new media among all Americans, but young consumers spend almost 2 hours more with new media; and that four in five US households now have a mobile phone, but mobile Internet uptake shows slow progress.
