"Adults better Web surfers than teens"

By K. Oanh Ha, Mercury News

...Teens ages 13 to 17 were able to complete assigned tasks on the Web 55 percent of the time, compared with 66 percent for adults... The teens were hampered by poor reading and research skills and were more prone to leave a site after encountering difficulties...

Interesting - seems to fly in the face of common wisdom, but it actually does make sense, in the full context.
