Downloading - A Blessing or a Curse
In Today's world downloading information off the net can seem like a real blessing, and it is. You can download free music, fonts, games, computer programs, virus software, TV, educational software, screensavers, trial versions, and more. However, there is a negative side to downloading. You can also pirate, plagerize, get your homework done for a small price, and even buy that test you need. In other words, people are not thinking for themselves anymore - they rely on downloading to do the work for them.
The Internet and TV - Helpful or Harmful?
"Use of the Internet is a mixed blessing," says the book A Mind at a Time. Learning how to find information can be very useful, but some students, the book explains, just "download information without really understanding or integrating it. Thus, the process runs the risk of becoming a new mode of passive learning or perhaps even a way of acquiring plagiarizing skills."
The simple, concise guide, Young People, Music and the Internet aims
to help young people use the Internet and mobile phones safely and legally to
download music. It comes as millions of people take advantage of the explosion
of new ways of accessing music digitally, but still lack clarity on safety and
legal issues, on finding legitimate sites, on the basics of copyright and on how
to unpick the jargon of digital music.

Violence Against Computers
"What do you do when your PC [personal computer] does not do what you want it to?" asks the on-line German magazine PC Welt. "Do you thump it? Or do you throw it straight out the window?" Such reactions are not rare. In a worldwide survey of 150 information technology managers, 83 percent reported bursts of rage or outright violence directed against computers. Users frustrated by a never-ending download or by a mouse that quits working sometimes smash the monitor, punch the keyboard, dash the mouse against the wall, or even kick the computer. While the computer bears the brunt of the user's frustration, it is often the user that has caused the problem.
