 I think the Internet has changed people’s lives in many good ways and now I would like to mention about some merits of the Internet. (@)
 I think technology and the information revolution, like the Internet, is really a benefit to society, especially to the aging society, for the three reasons. (A)
 I don’t think the use of new technology is invading our society. On the contrary, the use of new technology, like the Internet, is really a benefit to the society for the three reasons. (B)
 I believe the Internet has changed our lifestyle most. (C)
 Firstly, it allows users to communicate with each other more quickly and cheaply. It used to take us a long time to send letters and wait for replies, but now we can communicate with people much more quickly and cheaply thanks to the Internet. This is a real benefit, especially to elderly people because when they need help they can contact with people more easily.
 Secondly it saves time and transportation costs for shopping. On top of that it is very convenient, especially for elderly people, not to have to go shopping in a crowd, waiting in line, and carry heavy shopping bags around. Often shopping within a mall or department store can become such a hassle but now that thanks to the Internet, you can purchase an item with just a simple click of a mouse at home.
 Finally, it will give people more tailored medical treatment. Some research has shown that the number of elderly people with lung cancer who use the Internet to collect medical information has been increasing. This is a real benefit too.
 As I mentioned, I think the Internet has changed people’s lives in many good ways. (@)
