A world wide network of computers all linked together over the TCP/IP protocol. The Internet allows people to communicate in real time from different continents. Someone in South America can have an online chat with someone in Russia.

All manner of news and information can be accessed through search engines such as Google. All the major news outlets have websites that have free or subscription access to news.

You usually use the Internet via the World Wide Web. You use a Web browser such as Internet Explorer or Firefox to look things up.

The Internet is not without its problems. Viruses and spyware abound and can major mess up your computer if it becomes infested with them. You need a firewall and antivirus program for safety.
I can look up stuff on the Internet using Google.

The internet is the mass worldwide network of computers that you happen to be connected to. NOT THE WORLD WIDE WEB.
If you call the Internet the same thing that the Web 0is, you're a n00b!

A place where absolutely nothing happens.
Man, back in the olden days, I could get upwards of three chickens, a sack of barley, and a half-dead goat all for doing one of my technology intromercials.
