You Wouldn’t Want to Live Without the Internet!
The Internet has become one of the most important tools we use in our daily lives, revolutionizing everything from the way businesses work to the friendships people share.
This book tells the story of the Internet, from its early development to the creation of the World Wide Web.
This book explains the history and development of the Internet and what it has to offer. It also explains difference between the Internet and the World Wide Web. According to the book, “the Internet is a physical network of connected computers; the Web is a vast set of linked files on those computers”. I still don’t really understand it.
If the internet just disappeared one day, people would freak. We rely on the Internet for so many things; entertainment, communication, shopping, banking, health care, news, government, etc.
You can learn just about anything on the Internet, but with so much available, sometimes it’s hard to find what you need. Try looking up any subject online and you will be given over a million different result and only a fraction of them are useful. And you have to remember that just because it’s on the Internet, it doesn’t mean it’s true. Nowadays, anyone with a computer, an internet connection and an opinion can post information online.
You Wouldn’t Want to Live Without Cell Phones!
We rely on our cell phones all the time, whether it’s too keep in touch with friends, to play games, or to access the Internet. As phones become smaller, cheaper, and more powerful, we find it difficult to imagine life without them. But, until about 30 years ago, there were no cell phones.
How on earth did people manage?
This book explains what life was like before cell phones and how we got to today’s modern smartphones. It’s incredible how one single device can perform so many different functions.
For me, talking on the phone have always caused me a lot of anxiety, I don’t know why, it just does. I don’t even like text messaging that much, again I don’t know why. The buzzing my phone makes when I get a text message is just so nerve-racking for some reason. I mostly use my phone for browsing the Internet and watch dumb videos.
The world’s first telephone was invented by Alexander Graham Bell back in 1876. It’s amazing to see how far phone technology has come in 143 years and for me it’s scary to think what we’ll have in decades to come. I don’t know about you but I’m hoping we won’t have flying cars in the future. Texting while driving on the ground is dangerous enough, imagine how much damage could be done texting while flying in the air.
You Wouldn’t Want to Live Without Robots!
Robots are machines that can be programmed to carry out a series of complex actions automatically or under the control of an operator. They come in all shapes and sizes, from mechanical arms and driverless vehicles to walking, talking, artificial people.
Discover how robots are helping humanity by doing dangerous jobs, exploring remote places, and becoming our helpers and companions.
This book explains just how far back the idea for robots goes, how far the technology has come since then, and what’s in store for the future.
Robots work faster and more accurately to build things like computers and cars. Without robots, humans would have to do build them, and it would take longer and cost more. Robots also help to keep humans safe by doing dangerous jobs like working in coal mines, exploring the deep sea, and working on the space station.
As robot technology becomes more and more advanced, it won’t be long before we’re living in a world that we thought only existed in sci-fi movies.
As a bonus, here’s a link to a YouTube video of a small robot diving into a ball pit:
