In such a short amount of time the internet has changed our lives, we can now do anything and buy anything from a house to ordering dinner online.If you think about it you could never leave your house and still have everything you need. I would like to know how you feel about this, is it a good thing or a bad thing?

I guess it's all how you use it. So many people's livelihood depend upon the internet, including my business. When I lived in a rural area, I purchased things online all the time, because there was no place around to get it - I had to drive an hour just to get to a grocery store. But now that I live in the city, I rarely purchse anything online anymore. I have had countless people teling me to sign up for buying items online (multi-level marketing businesses) because it will save me time and money. But I like to go out an shop. When I tell them that they always look at me funny. I like to go and walk around, touch things, look at things, see the quality or lack of quality. Granted I don't like to wait forever in line, but I am a pretty paitent person, so a little wait never hurt me. If anything, the internet makes me distracted. I get on here to work and I end up surfing around looking at different things.

The Leisure of being able to buy groceries, everyday household items, and clothing on the internet was created for those people who have a busy lifestyle. I believe, however, that everyone has been picking it up and if it continues will lead to a Lazy World. Many things that are expensive at stores are cheaper online and in bulk, people feed off of these things. Is it bad? Yes. Can we stop it? No. Should We Try? YES!
