Connecting with friends from around the world, online shopping and banking, distance learning, forging virtual relationships, and even the ability to work from home — isn’t that remarkable? (Modern Technologies)

Online educational platforms offer courses, tutorials, and resources. Anyone with an internet connection has plenty of opportunities to work, study, and communicate. E-commerce platforms allow consumers to shop from their homes without leaving. Many businesses operate remotely worldwide. Customers have the opportunity to buy goods from all over the world without any borders. The most popular Internet service is email. Most people who have access to the Internet use the networks primarily for sending and receiving email messages. However, other popular services are available on the Internet: reading news, using the World Wide Web, telnet, etc. (The Internet)

  • Online databases give (provide) instant access to an (huge) extensive range of topics.
  • E-commerce platforms let (allow) (shoppers) consumers to shop from homes.
  • Lots of businesses are curated from distance (remotely) worldwide.
  • There are other popular services (available) on the Internet.

Part 5. A computer is an electronic machine that performs four functions: it inputs data (getting information into the machine); it stores data (holding the information before and after processing); processes data (performing prescribed mathematical and logical operations on the information at high speed); it outputs data (sending the results out to the user via some display method).

Desktop computers are large. They are not portable. The computer usually has a separate monitor. A separate keyboard and mouse allow the user to input data and commands. 

Notebook or laptop computers are small. They are lightweight enough to be carried with the user. They run on battery power, but can also be plugged into a wall outlet. They typically have a built-in LCD display that folds down to protect the display when the computer is carried around. They also feature a built-in keyboard and some kind of built-in pointing device (such as a touchpad). 

A tablet computer (often just called a tablet) looks like a large LCD touchscreen used for both input and output. Tablets typically include a Wi-Fi to get access to the Internet. 

Smartphones are high-end mobile phones. They combine the features of a mobile phone, camera, music player, GPS device, etc. Many smartphones use a touchscreen for input but some include physical keyboards. (A computer and its types)
