While young (18-29), middle-aged (30-49) and and older (50-64) tablet users display strikingly similar levels of use of their devices, they sometimes differ when it comes to their preferred activities, according to a recent report from Adobe that surveyed more than 3,000 mobile users across the US, Canada, UK, France and Germany.
