Internet Entertainment & Business

Introduction

It is truly amazing that our nation, including adult and youth as young as 5 or 6, now have the preoccupation of trying to obtain everything including their entertainment from the internet. Minimally, the internet is a resource for email, phone texting communications, purchasing, research, marketing, renting and/or viewing movies, and reading books that most all used to get from public libraries. Several book sellers are now experiencing difficulty in keeping their business profitable. In other words, they need to sell books so they can make a profit and stay in business with a physical store front. When you can read books over the internet, this is competition hard to compete with.

Modern Cell Phones

Most all of my friends have the most modern new phones that have been recently designed and put on the market. I’m not sure what the market capabilities are that are advertised, e.g., 3G or 4G. But even today’s teenagers are constantly texting and have developed a shorthand method of communicating without having to type out the exact word. E.g., LOL, 2GTBT, 303, 9, 99, CULA, OTL, and many others. I’m not sure but I believe there are hundreds more. LOL means laughing out loud. 2GTBT means too good to be true. 303 means mom. 9 means parent is watching. 99 means parent is no longer watching. CULA means see you later alligator. OTL means out to lunch. These acronyms are just an infinitesimal few of what an active texter might use. I don’t know the exact number of acronyms for texting, but I believe there to be hundreds.

Purchasing

Today I believe a very large percentage of the population shops and buys something over the internet on a weekly basis. I personally have bought vitamins, sport related items like ball gloves and cleated softball shoes, ink cartridges for my printer, and a complete modern computer with a high definition screen. I have not yet bought food related items over the internet, but have made lists from various food stores that send out electronic shopping flyers.

Research

How many of you have found out you can find information about most everything that exists today. The search engines of today are very powerful since their servers can store massive amounts of information. The major drawback to utilizing this information is, how do you know if this information is valid and not just one person’s opinion. To alleviate this doubt, most all websites have several testimonials from customers that are supposed to convince the reader that this information is accurate and the ultimate truth. I would feel better about these testimonials if a phone number was given so I could call the person that is giving the positive testimony. As far as I know, there has never been a site that gives anything more than a written endorsement and the first name of the person expounding how great the product or information happens to be. Even after this I still have doubts that these endorsements are nothing more than fiction.

Marketing

Internet marketing has many avenues and or sites that offer a potential marketer a way to make a fabulous amount of money from their home computer. The catch is that most companies do not deliver what they advertise and they are the ones who get rich from the ones who buy their product in an effort to become a rich internet marketer. Most all of these get rich quick sites claim they are accurate, but if you were not successful you did not properly work the plan they gave you. Or you did not work hard enough or long enough to realize the benefit. Too bad the purchase price of the products could not be held back until the purchaser decides the product is worth the price. I know this wouldn’t work but I think it is a good idea. The major problem with paying up front is the difficulty in getting a refund when you find out this product is not all it’s claimed to be.

Movies

During the last several years, movie buffs have been given new and cheaper ways to purchase movie entertainment. Movie rentals are hyped over the internet and renters are given additional local opportunities to pick up movie DVD’s from a machine vendor which they can access anytime day or night to pick up and return movie DVD’s. This method of viewing movies has not put the movie theaters out of business as first thought. People still like to go out and sit in an air conditioned theater while viewing the movie on a giant screen. I don’t think this will change in the near future even though many large screen TV’s are available to simulate this experience.

Summary

The internet is in my opinion the most impressive element of the last twenty-five (25) years to bring the world to most all computer internet locations or homes. The world continents thousands of miles away can be accessed at the computer operator’s keyboard fingertips. It never ceases to amaze me how the internet brings so many different things to so many different people. Internet business and internet entertainment of all types can be viewed on your computer screen. Various modes of entertainment can be downloaded and transferred to peripheral devices. This is just one additional continuance of the expansion of the internet’s potential to entertain and advertise to all the world’s users. What is next?
