Part 4: Exploring the Internet

Part 4: Exploring the Internet

This section only scratched the surface of all the cool things you can do with a PC. (For more ideas, check out www.littlepcbook.com.) The beauty of computers is that they are infinitely expandable with both hardware add-ins and software. And with all the great programs on the market today, you can do almost anything imaginable on your computer—except maybe teleportation.

So far, the Internet is the closest thing we have to teleportation and in the next section, we'll beam you up for a tour.

Now that you have your PC all set up and know a thing or two about software, it's time to take a journey. No, I'm not running you out of town; I want you to join me on a tour of the World Wide Web and all the other things that the Internet has to offer. As you probably already know, the Internet is changing the way all of us live our lives. Whether you're choosing a movie, booking a flight, buying a book, or investing in the stock market, the Internet can help you out. It's becoming the world's marketplace and changing the way we communicate, as email, online chat, and personal Web pages become part of our daily lives.
