If we are to analyse our daily routines, we will realize that there’s never a day without encountering the internet directly or indirectly, from our basic activities to the complicated tasks. For those who have made a huge part of their lives depended on the internet access, they may have already taken advantage of this technology that they no longer realize how they have made themselves too comfortable with it.
But feeling that way was not such a bad thing since indeed, the internet has proven itself to be very functional for businesses and even for personal use. In only a couple of years after its inception, the internet technology has evolved to a fast pace, from being merely a means to send and receive emails and make a couple of research to becoming a medium where people can chat, share files, download and upload data, get social, view movies, and much more.
Let us take some time to reflect on the most amazing ways on how the internet has made our lives almost effortless:
- Excellent and convenient means of communication – Before the internet, the only means of getting in touch with someone from afar is through phone or snail mails. These days, people can have a more thorough and intimate means of getting in touch with instant messaging or video chats where people can actually see one other through their laptop, PC, tablet and even the smartphone’s screens.
- People can still get ‘social’ with friends, relatives, colleagues, etc., even while busy – Back then, people tend to lose their connection with people they know since they don’t have time to hang out or even have coffee to catch up with what’s happening in their relatives or friends’ lives. These days, with the use of social media sites, people can just log in to their social media accounts at the time of their convenience to check out their network’s posts, photos, what they are liking these past few days, who they have just connected with, and much more. And just as well, people can let others know how they are doing through status updates, uploading photos or videos.
- Errands and other legworks are minimized – Tasks that are normally accomplished by heading out of the house, walking long distances, enduring road traffic, while the person has to catch the store, bank, or mall’s business hours, can now be done at the convenience of one’s home. Banking, paying bills, and even shopping through the internet can be done while conveniently sitting in front of one’s PC or even more conveniently in a couch with the laptop, tablet or smart phone, even during the wee hours.
- Getting a degree is possible without leaving the house – With the internet technology, getting a degree is no longer limited to students or those who have a lot of spare time. Mothers or working employees who are a bit busy can sneak in a little time to take up different online courses that will suit their interest.
- Availability and accessibility to different types of internet connection – Aside from the cable or wire connections, people can subscribe for WiFi internet subscriptions or better yet, mobile broadband connections for more mobility. These days, there are several providers who can cater to every business or household’s specific internet connection needs.
While the list has proven that the internet has indeed, made our lives almost effortless, we can still expect for more innovations to come with this amazing technology that will make our lives even more convenient.
