Perhaps you have a Lenovo netbook (like that one) and wanted to cruise down to your local cafe and realised that you wanted an extra battery pack for your prized possession. You could turn on your ThinkPad and go to http://www.become.com/lenovo where you could compare prices with one easy click.
You can even buy your Uncle Marvin that cool Three Wolf Moon Tshirt he has been saving his pennies for, while sipping on your latte, on the beach somewhere in the South of France.
Me, well, I love my laptop and its many uses, including a personal mini Theatre experience for the peanut and I, and it was a godsend during school. My folks on the other hand, are still on dial-up. And they have a 10 ft corded phone.
Kinda scary to think that I am the techie of the family. Even in university I would come home and the VCR (which they still have and use, by the way) would be flashing 12:00 and had a stack full of videos they wanted to watch but couldn't figure out what buttons to press to see the picture....would all be waiting for me to fix.
Now I am the official loader of MP3's and computer guru (I know, boy are they in trouble)!
How has technology or the World Wide Web changed your life? Or has it?
