The Internet is pretty crucial to our everyday lives. Everything from work, entertainment, and communication utilizes the Internet and its resources. In 1995, Newsweek wasn’t so sure the Internet would last. It was thought to be a fad that’d run out, I guess. They stated that a store in the mall does more business in an afternoon than the Internet did in a month. Today, that isn’t so. People shop for groceries online and for their books and college books. People shop for clothes, furniture, and just about everything else on the Internet.
The article complains about how silly it is to think we’d buy books straight from the Internet, because it’d be a hassle carrying around a clunky laptop of computer. Boy, were they way off. The Kindle hadn’t yet been introduced, obviously. Another topic picked at was computers in the classroom. They scoffed that computers and the Internet would be utilized in schools. Well, bursting the bubble now: kids can do their entire K-12 education online and half or more of their college online, too.
