My wife and I rely on the Internet for finances, paying bills, investing, keeping in touch with friends and family, health research, buying the best quality at the best price, music, videos, TV programs, medical/dental appointments, our schedule, news, game playing, scheduling and coordinating vacations, etc.
It is a real time saver and provides a way to supplement income.
Plus..... I am retired, and have plenty of time on my hands. So besides doing a demanding daily exercise program, and extensively using TIVO, the Internet provides me with a great many hours of enjoyment!
What's not to love about the Internet!
