Today we are all plugged in. The Internet and its associated technology is EVERYWHERE. In fact, how could we live without the Internet? That's how most of us keep in touch with friends, find homework support, do our shopping, or get the latest news and gossip. There is a lot of great stuff we can do on the Internet.
