Hey, Yea I think that the Internet has actually change my life in a huge way. In the past when I was smaller, and I had to hand in some assignments, I could only give it to the teacher on the day it is due, but now I can email it before 12 AM. Make sure you have a good day, God bless and Happy Lotting!!

Internet has become not only my biggest diversion but it has also made so many things easier for me.THree years back I relocated from a small place to Mumbai and ever since that I have made myself familiar with internet in a big way.THis is a very big city and now internet banking , paying bills online and so many activites like booking travel tickets are given greater ease these days.I cannot be without internet.THe disadvantage is that we may get addicted to this , compromising on certain other activiites .I also get back pain with excessive typing here.

Indeed internet changed my life a lot! Aside that it provides me countless hours of entertainment, now it provides additional income! Good thing that I'm born in these era of great technology!

I would imagine that the internet has caused alot of people to lose touch with reality. We can do sooo much online that it's easy to FORGET that there's an outside world waiting for you to join it. We can only truly enjoy our friends' and family members' presence to a certain extent online (even with social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Skype) - nothing beats physical presence and spending TIME with a person on a face-to-face basis. But that's just my opinion. I don't feel like I'm missing out on anything because I only come online for about an hour a day - or less, usually, depending on how busy I am that particular day. I can't imagine living without it, though, as it supplements some of my income - and definitely 99% of my boredom. .

It -has- changed my life in quite a noticeable manner, if for the better or the worse however... either or I don't know, or it was for the worse and I just can't admit it. I've spend a large deal of my life playing online MMORPGs, literally wasting my time as all the time I spent there, albeit fun, was productive in absolutely no way and it just stole me precious time I could not devote to one other single task. I have to admit that it allowed me to learn some things, meet people, and all that, but I'm not so sure if these small advantages any anywhere near to overcome the disadvantages I endured from my experience with the Internet from all these years.

I do feel the big advantage of it.You now can start a home based business with a very low cost. With traditional way of selling, you need at least to rent a place, either within the market, shopping mall or other properties, and it may be the biggest cost. If there's no online mrketing, I would probably not be a clothings seller, as I owned a limited fund. With the internet, I don't have to rent anything but webhosting and domain name, and all my fund can go to purchase the products.
