A conversation, most commonly had after a long day at work, might resemble something like this: “Hello! Did you hear anything I just said?” to which a response might be, “Hang on.” Or “I’m trying to watch this show on TV.” Admittedly, my fiancé and I sometimes hold different ideas of how we want to wind down in the evenings. He wants to tune out with a TV show that I’m not all that interested in, making my urge to talk even stronger. Thankfully, we’ve found shows we equally enjoy through Amazon Prime and Netflix.
The invention of the Internet has become one of the greatest technological changes and has impacted the lives of Americans economically and socially. In today’s world, almost anything can be found on the Internet and it has an impact on almost every facet of our lives. People can order pizzas online, find relationships or shop for the perfect pair of shoes. Many items once thought inaccessible from one’s home are now accessible. For example, Amazon.com has even developed a way to get groceries from its warehouse to doorsteps.
