It is pretty mind blowing when you think about it. It can be hard to believe at times that the internet is such a big part of our everyday lives. When you actually consider the technology that goes into it, it makes you appreciate it so much more.

I agree with you. It's hard to believe, but it really is part of our lives. Just the fact that most people will struggle without the connection in just a single day is a big evidence that technology has completely invaded our lives and is already part of our lifestyle.

I can relate. It can also be a bad thing. Our dependence on technology could eventually bring our downfall. A lot of factories have been known to contribute to pollution. Basically, it does some amount of good but with a price.

This is indeed the truth not everything that technology resulted in is helpful. Internet, when used in a bad way, would lead people astray. Teens nowadays rely heavily on the internet and sometimes abused it.

I was amazed how things like this happened but I always thinking that it is all about the hi-technology that we have now.

Absolutely correct! It is indeed part of our lives already. Sometimes you can not function without internet. When we are working, we use internet, when we are calling someone from abroad we use internet.

We would go back to an old era or to the times where internet is being made. Imagine if we go back to that time, life would be quite hard and tiresome. Technology helps us make our life easier without it, everything we do or working takes time to finish.

I dont think people will survive if we will go back to that time. Business is depending now in the computer and technology so if things go wrong the business sector will definitely suffer and people too.

You are correct, we are not so sure how does it really works and you will be amazed when you think of it and maybe, you will be curious as well. Technology is like a galaxy that you need to explore so you might know more what is inside of it.

I agree. It's something we take for granted. For those of us born into it, we think it's just part of normal life. But it's only been recently invented in the past few decades. Lots of people lived their lives without even using a computer.

How amazing our technology now! Yes, true! It's sounds interesting how fast internet data is which travels from place to place even if a person lives far from the country. Well, there are more amazing facts we can discover about internet such as there are more than 1.9 billion websites in the internet and some of it are most likely a blogs and businesses sites, a very competitive phase for us especially new comers.

I have always been fascinated by the Internet. I am not so much interested in how it works as in that it does work and hopefully will never stop working AND people around the world will be granted access to this tool that makes the entire planet a world with no borders. Internet for everyone is on my Christmas Wish List, along with World Peace. I honestly believe - idealistically and unrealistically (I know) - that the Internet is a means to achieving world peace.

I think you’re right. It’s amazing how the internet really does break down borders. I even think about here on the forum on SEOLads there are people from all countries and backgrounds - it’s pretty wonderful when you think about it!

For me, it's the most wonderful invention ever! I have always wanted to travel to various parts of the world but it's not possible. However, with the Internet, it's “virtual travel”. But hey! I meet real people. The people aren't “virtual”. LOL.

Internet has pros and cons too, but I lean towards positivity like I can't imagine life without internet, I mean it's just now a part of our life, this era is the most amazing and interesting time to be alive, we have unlimited access to almost all the information in the world and that for me is amazing, like for me everyone can quit school quit their job and live in home together with their loved ones and learn online study online and get a job online because of internet nothing really is impossible, thanks to the one who invented internet.

For sure there are more positives than negatives. I used to worry about my kids going to college and not having transportation to get to and from the campus. But now they can go to school online and never leave the house. What a blessing! They didn't get cheated out getting an education. The Internet brought the college to them.

"... Global village is exactly my point with the invention of the internet.."

Seriously without the internet, the world would be still a stone dull and boring planet in my opinion.

So, the internet has made everything all better and we can't do without it today.

This is kind of true. Without internet we might not be able to communicate thru messenger or any other application. Without internet there would be no such thing as Facebook and Youtube.

It is pretty special. When I was younger I had snail mail penpals and it used to take a couple of weeks for letters to arrive from overseas. Nowadays with email you can send messages globally in the snap of your fingers. Such a wonderful innovation!

luv2xacosta

I agree. Before, we need pens and paper to communicate to our families in another country. We have to email it and wait for days receiving the letter, but now we can talked to them face to face using our smartphones, tablet or laptop. We can connect to them instantly which a huge advantage having an internet.

I totally agree, and that's the power of internet. Humans now a days rely on internet. Everything we do, we use internet, from traveling, doing some business transactions, calling our love ones, and etc we use internet. It's like a part of our life already and when the times it's gone, we can not function properly.

Well, who doesn't know about the internet and how good it has been to our world. The world is made a global village today all because of the internet and social media.

Yes, you are right. The technology has done wondrous things and the greatest of them is the internet. I can't imagine how people will be if internet is cut. Well, we managed to live without it before, but l, nowadays, we will be struggling.

Somehow I agree with you. Technology amaze us until now. Thru internet we can search anything we want. If we may want to play games, we can download thru internet. If we just want a youtube then we can search videos for entertainment or DIYs. The communication from other people also serves here. We can connect with other people without living the country.

I also find it very amazing that technology has come a long way. I just can't fathom what would be the heights that it'll achieve in the future. I just hope that the security of the accounts would still be a top priority in the future.

I also hope that will be the case when it comes to security. If people start to lose faith in how secure their data is, it might see the internet as we know it change dramatically.

Alymae

Me as well. Security is the danger of the internet because of the increasing numbers of hacking. Personally, I haven't experienced being hacked and I don't want to experience. But I have friends who were hacked, most of it is there accounts on Facebook. What I am scared about is someone going to use your identity.

Well you can have anything one snap of your hands and that's a fact. As our world is modernized, high technologies, and fast internet connection, you can always connect the outside world. You can have a news about other countries, always updated about the lives of the celebrities that you've followed, can do online shopping, live streaming and etc. These are the wonders of internet.

I never knew that! Kind of crazy to think about the extreme depths that the internet can go to. I wonder if there are accurate figures about just how many websites are out there, for example. I think it’d be almost impossible to calculate!

It's amazing how our technology has immensely improved now when years ago people were only limited to writing letters to each other and have to wait for weeks to get a reply! Even telephones back then were so expensive that you couldn't stay long enough in a call to enjoy a real conversation. But these days it's all free!



Enter a reason for deleting this comment

amelia88

Even when I was a kid in the early 90s that was the case - even calls within our country that were longer than a certain distance away were classed as “long distance calls” and were pretty expensive. Hard to believe that we’ve completely bypassed that these days and we can video chat with people around the globe for free!



Enter a reason for deleting this comment

knnon

I remember that time as well. And the dial up internet, I think it was really expensive at that time. Do you remember using the internet and no one can use the phone at the same time? LOL! What a time that was. That was one of the reasons why I couldn't stay longer than an hour online, it's because no one could use the phone if I was online.

Technology has come a long way. This is an interesting fact to know and have. Its fascinating I wonder how someone thought of this idea. I know that Bill gates is credited with coming up with the first personal computer. Who came up with the internet? I know that the internet started spreading seriously in the 1990's. Most of us were too young then and don't even remember the whole process.Interesting fact.

Yes. It seems that this information has been taken for granted. I wonder who has a bigger contribution, Bill Gates or the inventor of the internet? Since you brought up this question, I will read about this. I am very curious now.

Wow. I didn't know that. What I do know is I can't live the life I'm used to without internet connection. That would be boring. I hope in the future internet connection would be free and you can connect anywhere. That's impossible nowadays since telecommunication companies took the opportunity to make money out of it.



Enter a reason for deleting this comment

Alymae

Yes. I also hope that the internet will become free and that anyone can connect to it. It is still pretty impossible nowadays because there are areas that cannot be reached by signal towers such as here in my place. We have a signal but not the entire province has it.

Yes I was aware of this fact. Many public and the commercial servers is what makes up the internet. And ISPs are playing the important role here for the communication. And their data transfer is what is responsible for us to communication and other things. You can see that internet is changing it may add new ways for the communication. That should give people some idea on the data transfer.

The Internet is indeed really amazing. I cannot imagine how people invented this technology. Nowadays, we live in a digital age where you can almost get anything from the internet. Through the internet, people are connected from all around the world. You learn from Google almost anything under the sun. The society today is a very far from what it is before.

There are different ways to transmit data it could be via optic cables which is laid in the sea floor connecting countries which is pretty amazing really because to lay it down they would need big ships and submarines along with deep sea divers. Data can also be transmitted thru older copper cables and thru Satellites. It's really amazing how people developed the technology to do this.

I'd imagine it would only take a few seconds. Messaging apps like Viber show you when the person has received the text and when the person has read it. Sometimes there's a delay for sure but it only takes a few seconds so I'd imagine it would take a few seconds to send and receive email.

Yes, internet is one of the best invention in human history. It makes one's life easy in terms of communication, research and gathering of information and news. It gives us learning in daily basis. It feels like a huge library with updates. Although, there are also wrong information shared on internet but it has more advantage and useful for us. I salute those people who first started the concept of internet. The developers and programmers who work hard to improve and develop this technology up to this days.

When I was younger, I always have thought like that. I always ask how can two people be able to talk through telephone? How can their voice reach the other side? And how does our data travel? It was truly amazing. But what really amazes me is how does the Bible knows what will happen in the future and wrote it thousands of years ago.

Think of a scenario that your forefather who lived in the early 1900 will come back to life and experience the internet. I’m sure he will be both shocked and amused because of the impossibility of the digital communication during his time. Even some seniors nowadays are surprised to the reality of the internet communication facilities not to mention the apps and the websites.
