  The Web as a Way of Life

  If you ask people today why they use mobile phones to communicate with their friends or why they turn to TV for entertainment they will look at you as if you are crazy. These things have become such an integral part of life that they are no longer noticed, let alone remarked on.

  In the same way, within a decade no one will notice the web. it will be just there. It will be a way of life. People will use it for shopping, education, entertainment and communication. They will invent new uses for it.

  A change like this is generational. Old people have to learn something about new things outside their everyday life, while kids who grow up with a new technology simply treat it as given.

  In the future, everyone’s business card will have an email address. Every lawyer, every doctor and every business-from large to small-will be connected. On the other hand, the variety of activities on the web will be broadening at an amazing rate. You can find all kinds of interesting materials on the web.

  Many sites will have a huge traffic flow. People will trade the time they now spend reading the paper or watching TV for time spent surfing the web. Americans, particularly young Americans, will spend less time in front of the TV, and more on the web.

  We usually overestimate what we can do in two years and underestimate what we can do in ten. The web will be as much a way of life as the car by 2008 and probably before.

  24. The web will be an integral part of life because ________.

  A. we will use it to do lots of things B. it will replace the TV

  C. we won’t notice it is there D. it will help us to lead better lives

  25. In the future ________.

  A. all business cards will have email addresses B. doctors and lawyers will not use the web

  C. traffic will be controlled on the web D. all business will be done on the web

  26. According to the last paragraph it can be most probably inferred that ________.

  A. we have no idea how the web will develop

  B. there will soon be more computers than cars

  C. we are very good at predicting the future

  D. the development of the web will be faster than we expect

  27. The writer is ________ about the development of web.

  A. unsure B. fearful C. confident D. crazy
