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.

1.) Designed to be an indestructable communications medium, in the event of a worldwide catastrophe. The only real worldwide catastrophe to happen so far is the Internet itself.

2.) Part of the "information superhighway" intiative. Let's see what happens in another 50 years.
Make sure your online service also includes internet access.

A total web of confusion, dismay, and pornography.

It's a series of tubes.
They want to deliver vast amounts of information over the internet. And again, the internet is not something you just dump something on. It's not a truck.

It's a series of tubes.

And if you don't understand those tubes can be filled and if they are filled, when you put your message in, it gets in line and its going to be delayed by anyone that puts into that tube enormous amounts of material, enormous amounts of material.

A place where Bill Gates said would never work. Yet here we are, whoring ourselves to the Internet and MSN Instant Messenger.

Yes, the Internet does own you.
My best friend had the Internet. He said it was cool, until I found his storage of gay porn. I asked him where he got it, he said something called the "Internet"?

Oh my god, MY COUNTERSTRIKE ACCOUNT HAS BEEN DELETED!!! Oh I forgot, the Internet hacked it. Well, off I go to the Microsoft support website.
