Hi Pamela,

A very good resource with good examples with pictures. This age is an age of technology and internet is ruling the world and some youngsters are hooked to it as never before.It has no doubt made life easier . However, it is making people lazy and uncommunicative.

I feel , people should not depend too much on the net and use it intelligently.

Hi Pamela,

It is really an excellent article on Internet with nice photos and simple explanations. Now a days it has become an essential to use Internet for each and every work that we do. Let it be railway ticket booking, or sending money to a friend, or booking a hotel room, or want to know about some place of tourist interest, or want to make friends who are very far away from you, or want to talk to your close relatives without any telephone bills etc. and many more. All this is possible only because of Internet. I can say that Internet is ruling the world in recent times. It has made our life easier. Each and every work can be done in split seconds. Now we can even pay our telephone bills thru internet, earlier days we had to stay in long queues and wait for hours together to pay the phone bills. Now we can pay the bills within few minutes that too sitting in our home.
