The Internet

Everybody has a TV, but not everyone has a computer. Did you know that soon your TV and your
video player will be integrated with the computer? Why have 3 machines when only one can do
everything? Technology is always changing. Some estimates say that 150 million PC's world wide have
internet connection. Brazil has 2,5% of internet users in the world. (July 2001). First is
the United States with 166 million users, next is Japan with 47 million users and Brazil is
in 10th place with 12 million users and has the fastest rate of increase of internet users
in the world! How Brazil will change because of the internet is difficult to say, but it
definitely will change.
