In my free time, I really like surfing the Internet. When I get home from work, I turn on my computer, wait until it boots up completely, and then I go online. I still have a dial-up connection, but I’m switching to a broadband Internet service soon. It costs more a month, but Webpages load faster with a high-speed connection, and I can upload and download files quicker. I usually check my email first and write a few messages first to family and friends. I sometimes scan the local news headlines at my favorite news Website and read up on the latest local and international news. This Website often provides video news clips that you can view online. I sometimes order products or service online to save money and time instead of going to a store and buying what I’m looking for. For example, I ordered a digital camera online the other day and saved about $50. Whatever I do, I realize that there are problems with using the Internet including scams, identify theft, and viruses, so I’m very careful not to give out my personal information. Furthermore, I don’t download or open files I don’t recognize. Using the Internet can be fun and convenient way of shopping and finding out new information, but you just need to be careful.
