How the Internet Controls Our Lives

Henderson, Carter ( 2001 Jul/Aug). How the internet is changing our lives. Futurist Vol. 35 Issue 4, p38.Retrieved from EBSCOhost.

This article talks about every aspect on how the internet controls our lives .Here is a very interesting quote I liked from the article, "If the automobile and aerospace technology had exploded at the same pace as computer and information technology," says Microsoft, "a new car would cost about $2 and go 600 miles on a thimble of gas. And you could buy a Boeing 747 for the cost of a pizza." It’s hard to image if this was realistically true. This article also talked about: kids and computers, how domain names could make you rich, internet dating, internet auctions, identity theft, online entertainment, downloading music, expert advise, cyber sharing, online education, news, and online wealth. Truly the internet has changed the way we do anything forever.
