Windows 7: How Has The Computer Changed You?

When I was in high school in the 60's, Mom made me take typing. I saw no point in it. Well I kept up with it and when I got my first computer in 1988, I knew how to type. Thanks Mom. == I bought it just to play games. It was pretty expensive and pretty slow, but it was a computer. I learned spreadsheets and other productive stuff which translated to better jobs. It also has been good for meeting people. I have met in person some of them and others they just are good friends even though we have never met. It got me hooked on Fantasy Baseball and Football on the internet. Thank you, thank you for that . The PC has been a great source of enjoyment. I do all of my shopping on the internet now. I just never buy things in stores, except for shoes. Still have to try them on. I did all of my Christmas shopping on the internet and pay all of my bills online also. I guess I have gotten pretty lazy .

Nowadays instead of hitting the phone book to find the number of a place, I just type it into Google.

Also, I've gotten a bit loose with my spelling since I know auto correct will get it or point it out....terrible huh?

I never have to write checks, buy stamps, or leave the house to pay bills. Also I don't have cash on me very often.

No cash, I guess that stops you from getting mugged also.

I don't think that I could begin to express how the computer has changed my life. The biggest is that it provides me with a job that supports my family. The areas that the computer has changed my life are endless.
