Think about this. If we had no Internet, what do we need the computer for? Sure you could probably finish up some project but honestly you probably need to check your mail to get that one document for the project. Oops that requires an Internet connection.
I think we don’t realize just how much we depend on having the “always on” Internet. In the movies they make it seem easy like everywhere they go there’s a wi-fi connection available. Unfortunately that’s not always true. Granted, there’s always that one neighbor who has an unencrypted wi-fi and you can just jump on it real quick.
But really, think about it. If there was no Internet connection, would you even need to use your computer? Can you? Even if you wanted to play a game, a majority of people play Steam games. Well, you can go in offline mode, but it’s such a pain to play without an Internet connection, it’s almost not worth it. Then there’s World of Warcraft. Well, sorry Charlie, since it’s an MMORPG. Okay, so you want to play single player Starcraft II or Diablo III. Oops, Blizzard requires you to login to play those games too. Even if you’re only going to play a single player game. Boo!
Face it, without an Internet connection, the computer is useless nowadays. There’s not much to do. Am I missing something? Let me know!
