what would you do if the internet suddenly changed? what if we had to pay per search from all major search engines like from google/yahoo/msn? let's say you had to option to pay 1cent per search or 10$/month for unlimited searches? although it's not much to some of us, companies like google can earn a lot.. would you pay them to search the web?

hell no. that is gay and lame. what a waste of money. i would then go to the library and do manual research like the olden days.

Ooh - that would be terrible - I love searching the web! If it was the only option, I might pay $10/month for unlimited searching. If we had to pay per search I would have to seriously cut down because I do a lot of searching online. Let's hope that never happens! I really wouldn't find it annoying to pay these big companies money to search, but I might have to because the internet makes so many things so much easier.

omg. i'm gonna limit my search. and i'll first research in encyclopedia or library. newspapers would also be a good choice. hmmm. I don't know what's life would it be without free search engines. just think of it. very hard. but just think of the past - no internet. I think we could still survive. :)

I might pay a minor fee like $10/month. However, if it was anything more than that, I'd be in big trouble. I use internet searches several times a day, so I would probably be forced to pay for the service. I don't know if I could afford a per search fee though.

Ouch. I don't think so. I think I'd have to cut down on my fun searches. Like the one I did a few minutes ago on KIM RICHARDS. You know, the little girl from the movie Escape from Witch Mountain. It would seriously curtail the fun factor
