NEW YORK — Teens are heading to their computers with a mouse in one hand and a credit card in the other.
In an economy where dot-coms are not making as much money as they once were, teen girls are surely keeping e-commerce alive. According to Rob Callender, trend manager at Teenage Research Unlimited, teens are most comfortable with modern technology and still look to the Internet regularly for advice, fun and shopping. Teens, he said, go online even more often today then they did before.
