Describe a time that you looked for information from the Internet
You should say:
When it happened
What you were looking for
Where you were searching on the Internet
And how you felt about the information
The Internet has become an integral part of our lives. Young generation now spends most of its time on the internet. Like others, I also use the internet for various purposes. Most of the time I see what my friends and family have posted on Whatsapp or Facebook.
Here, I would like to talk about a time when I searched for information about how to repair the computer. During the final year of my graduation, it was a Sunday evening and the next morning I had to submit a project in my college. The project was an application/ software which could be used for conducting online exams of students. I had already made that software so on that evening when I started my PC to check whether my software is working fine, the computer showed a blank screen. I restarted my computer many times but it was still showing a blank screen. I went to all local computer repair shops but because of Sunday, they all were close. So finally I thought of repairing it myself.
YouTube is the second largest search engine for all types of creative projects and solution for your problems. So I searched on YouTube “reasons of blank screen on the computer”. There were many people who were giving different reasons of why one can have a blank screen on the computer. Most of them suggested that before doing any major change in your computer hardware, first take the RAM out of your computer, clean it with a soft cloth or a rubber and then reinstall it. There are likely chances that your computer screen will start working. I did the same thing; I took the RAM out, cleaned it and then reinstalled it. After installing the RAM, I switched on my computer and everything started functioning normally the screen was on. It was a great relief for me because now I could check whether my online exam software was working as it should be.
I check it and it was working fine. On the next day, I went to the college and demonstrated my project to the teachers. So the internet gave me the solution to my problem and I was really happy on that day.
What ways can people get information these days?
What are the differences between getting information from library and getting information from newspaper?
What are some of the advantages of internet?
Internet has surely come up with great advantages to offer all of us. Firstly, it allows for free communication with people far off from us. You see, it is very easy to know how your friends miles away from you is actually. Also, internet provides us with information regarding anything and everything. There are so many people writing about so many things and often people share their experiences helping others stuck in the same issue. Internet surely has made the world a smaller and a better place.互联网无疑为我们提供了巨大的优势。首先，它允许与远离我们的人进行自由交流。你看，很容易就能知道你的朋友离你有多远。此外，互联网为我们提供了关于任何事情的信息。有如此多的人在写如此多的东西，而且人们经常分享他们的经历，帮助别人在同一个问题上。互联网无疑使世界变得更小、更美好。
What according to you are the disadvantages of Internet?
No doubt, internet is over whelming and it does provides us with everything but then I believe it is very addictive as well. I have seen people getting stuck to it and hence spending so much less time with their family and friends. Also, with youtube and facebook, it is observed that people are becoming more addictive to them and less efficient at work.毫无疑问，互联网已经超越了它，它确实为我们提供了一切，但我相信它也会让人上瘾。我看到人们被困在那里，因此花在家人和朋友身上的时间少得多。此外，在youtube和facebook上，人们发现，人们对他们的吸引力越来越大，工作效率也越来越低。
Do you think writing emails has strenghtend or weakened people’s writing skills?
I would say, it has strengthened people’s writing skills. Now, people are more aware that the email gets stored and can be used as proof, they make sure that the language written is proper. So, too an extent yes, email writing has surely helped people improve their formal writing skills.
I think there has been no such difference in the writings skills of the individuals. People who could earlier write great applications are able to write good emails but the ones who lagged behind their, still are not able to manage writing good emails.
What are some of the disadvantages of emails?
Emails have surely made our lives simpler, but I think they have taken the fun of waiting. It was not the letter that made it special but its wait that made it more special. With emails, instant talking is possible taking away the entire fun. Also, there is a security issue with emails. If some hacker is able to get through your mail id, one has no idea what havoc can be created.电子邮件无疑让我们的生活更简单，但我认为他们已经享受了等待的乐趣。不是这封信使它变得特别，而是它的等待使它变得更特别。通过电子邮件，即时聊天可能会带走整个乐趣。此外，电子邮件也存在安全问题。如果某个黑客能够通过你的邮件id，你就不知道会造成什么样的破坏。
