One’s life stage is a convenient if simplified way to summarize distinct groups of technology users, since it integrates age, employments status, and presence of children into one view. It isn’t as if on getting a job or having children one is handed a collection of technology products and services. However, for most tech, there is a strong association towards or away from certain products types with respect to Life Stage.
