Google has published an interesting blog post with some data on how people are using their tablet devices, including how they multi-task, and where they do it in the house.
“Tablets are multi-tasking devices with at least 42% of activities occurring while doing another task or engaging with another entertainment medium,” explains the company. Think playing games on a tablet while watching TV as one example, or… listening to music while cooking. Yes, Google’s data reveals a strong link between people listening to music while cooking, and also listening to music in the kitchen. Other findings include the fact that “tablets are for the most part a one-person device, although there are consumers who share their tablet with other family or household members”.
