The internet age has a big impact on changing our life. We do get information from the net, we make money in the net, we transact business in the net and many more. When I am not in front of the computer and just doing nothing, I sometimes can think of myself in the olden days when there were no internet yet. Life was so boring then that letting pass the day is like counting weeks aready. I am grateful that life has been changed by technology although this does not mean that I totally dependent with the internet. I still can live without it.. But for a few days only. LOL

A life without internet is like life without water/air. Just exaggerating. We are used to this new technology but we can still live if the whole satellite is destroyed.

Internet was and will always be the biggest breakthrough ever. It is like the invention of light bulbs, and discovery of fire. I cant definitely live without the internet. It has always been the biggest part of my life. We can communicate with people at the far end of the world. We can make money as you say. And all the different things that we can do with the internet. I am very happy that our lives made easier with the touch of a button only. And we can enjoy some games that we can download. See movies that we can download too from the internet. Most of all research can be done here without any hassles. It had made great impact in many of us. In the future no kid will not know about the internet. I am very happy we have a good internet connection in our home.

I can also live without the television but not without internet. In fact, right now, I am in my sister's place because the internet connection at home is not okey. It is too slow. How can I do mylotting with a very slow internet.

Hi dorisday, to me, life would turn rather inconvenient and vapidity if without internet. It's true that I depend a lot on internet to deal with many daily stuffs. My daily routines couldn't go on smoothly if I can get on to the net. I pay nearly 28 us dollars a month for subscribing the current internet service. But it's so disappointed that the isp doesn't take good care of their customers in this area. The network always interrupted, especially after raining. We can't work on computer as usual anymore. I usually grab my laptop and rush to the nearby coffee house to continue my work there. It's really irritating to see the worst service of the local isp here. No matter how many times we have made report to the company the poor service never improve any. I think this always happen to area where there is only a monopoly isp. It's so sad that the satellite coverage of the a new isp still not reaching my living area. It's 300 meter away from the coverage Happy posting

Yeah I would have to agree with you with out the internet I think that I would go crazy with boredom because the internet is a lot of fun to interact with others make money or view videos or whatever I just love to shop on the internet too especially on ebay I go on there like everyday to see what they have for cheap and I always get great deals and save a lot of money who can't go a day with out the internet I have done that before and it was torture, but I couldn't go on because the internet was down due to the weather I did not like it one bit because I was so bored, but as soon as the internet was back on I rushed to it I guess I am addicted to it.

Of course the trend has changed. We need internet to extend our living circle. When I missed the internet, I was just liked isolated from other people. With this powerful tool, I can go online to search for map, online banking, surf for products information, to deal with properties, to earn some pocket money and so on. When I am alone at home, internet is much more better than my television program. It is a good companion for me to have dual ways communication.

I can remember the days not so long ago where not everyone would sit online for days on end and would get out to do somethings. I can remember when I was younger with no net how easy it was to come up with things to do like camping, bike riding or whatever we could think of. Then the internet came along and all my friends got lazy and barley got out anymore. We had the power go out a few days back for 6 hours and it did make me realize how we depend all these electrical devices and when they don't work how it leaves use wondering what next where when we where younger its wasn't any big deal. Its funny how much things have changed just since the 90's.

it's really hard to think of a life nowadays without internet. I am a person who needs Internet 24x7 for my job. Its really hard and very boring to think of such a stage when there is no internet.

I never thought about it but you are right. I do not think we can survive without the internet now. It used to be television, but now I watch tv and work on my computer. I usually don't even know what show is on because I am concentrating on my computer so much. Internet rules our lives now, what will it be 10 years from now. Oh yeah end of the world 2012 lol

Same in my situation without internet is very boring. Computer is useless if we don't have internet. However internet is useless if we don't have computer too LOL. Its simply say that internet is very useful, like for business, communication, gaming and for study. If you have internet in your house means you have an encyclopedia with unlimited volume.

Not only has the internet been a tool for learning and earning, I've entertained myself regularly with my computer. Before we had a computer, I use to watch so much television when at home or work on craft projects. The computer has allowed me to search various subjects and find out valuable information from health issues to toys. I also love to play games on Pogo.

It is a necessity in this generation to have internet connection especially if your using it to pay your bills online and to connect with your family back home. Before we used to exchange letters via airmail and record a voice tape and send it to our loved ones, now it has been an innovation to use different applications to chat with our loved ones abroad. Aside from these, I also favored earning online so internet is really important for me. Although I am not attached emotionally to it since I can also live without it. But as what I am saying, it really makes life easier when you have internet connection.

yeah right. Internet really does a big change in our lives. For me, as of now, this can be a big help..for studies, for earning for a living, and even ease the boredom when we are tired of doing all those house chores. I even can play or chat with other people even without going out. We can never tell if this will have bad effect in our future soon, but for now, life is really amazing with internet.

Hi, I can not live without internet because now is very essential and important in our lives and i think most of you will agree on me. We need internet in our daily lives and it helps in everything we do to help improve our life. For me i can live without it for days or one week i guess but more than that no.

Yeah, you are right that life without internet is boring, but in past when we didnot have any computer or internet, we have had other choices like reading magazine, playing games etc, life at that certain time was not boring too. But now our choices are different, we have many friends online than in real life, we have so many works to do online, we have our readings on website, so as the technology is overcoming us, we ll eat, drink and sleep with technology. For me, I cannot imagine a day without internet. Very hard time to pass, because we now dont have any interest in other activities, our priorities are on internet...
