The Amazing Internet
Is the internet really necessary in Hereford, Texas? Most people would probably go crazy if they didn’t have an internet connection for just one day. The internet started with computers in the 1950’s and its main idea was for computers to communicate with each other. Since then, computers and computer application programs have advanced. This has made the internet more popular and helpful for us. The major internet service provider in Hereford is AT&T. We are fortunate to have internet service in Hereford, Texas because it is a necessity in everyday life.
One of the benefits of having an internet connection on a computer is that you can go to social network websites such as Facebook and MySpace. They make it easier for people to stay in touch with friends and family. I am originally from Los Angeles, California but moved to Hereford, Texas about seven years ago and had lost contact with mostly all my friends and family. Luckily, I was able to get a computer with an internet connection. Facebook made it very easy for me to find family and old friends. Since then, I have also used Email websites provided by Google, Yahoo, and Hotmail to communicate with friends and family. All of the benefits provided by these websites would not be possible without the internet.
It is difficult shop in Hereford, Texas because it is a small town that has limited stores. The closest shopping centers are in Amarillo but most of us do not have the time to travel forty-five minutes just to shop. The internet has made my shopping easier. I do most of my shopping through websites such as Amazon and Ebay. In fact, I have also bought my school textbooks online. You can buy anything from car parts to clothing without having to leave your home. The items get delivered right to you. In addition, some of the items sold online are also cheaper than if you were to buy them from a regular store.
Paying bills is also something that the internet has made easier for...
