Dear People of 1981,
You'd be amazed how computers have changed since the 1980s. Back then it took about 2 hours for someone to get the days newspaper, and now you can get almost any news to come up on the internet in seconds. Theres also many other things to do, like search things, and theres Email, Youtube, Blogger, etc. Now we can even look at our homework online. We can play games, talk through Email and other things, and watch videos.
As you can see, theres now TONS of things to do on the internet, and it has come a long way since the 1980s.
