  1. “The study found 46 percent of young adults aged 18 to 24 prefer access to the Internet over access to their own car, and that teens drive less overall today than they did in past generations.”

    Seems a bit disingenuous to state the “Teens want phones, not cars” when it is 46% that prefer smart phones over cars?

  2. It didn’t say “all” or even “most” teens. The fact that a significant percentage (46%) prefer smart phones is a real sea change.
