8 Ways the Internet Has Simplified Life

8 Ways the Internet Has Simplified Life

Thinking back, it’s hard to imagine what life was like before the internet became a part of our everyday existence. Can you remember a time when you couldn’t send a quick email to a friend, family member, or colleague? When you couldn’t check your bank account balance online? When you couldn’t send or receive money in an instant? If there’s one thing we can be sure of, it’s that the internet has made our lives much easier.


The internet has completely revolutionised the banking system and it seems almost entirely unnecessary to visit a physical branch in this day and age. People are now able to do almost everything they could possibly ever need to do through online and mobile banking services – that is unless you want to talk to a person face to face!

Health and Well-Being

Never before have people been able to type a few symptoms into a search engine and get real advice from medical professionals as to what the diagnoses may be. Of course this is no replacement for a face-to-face doctor’s visit, but it may be able to waylay worry until proper medical advice can be sought out.


Need some groceries? Want to buy a gift voucher? Looking for an outfit and accessories for a night out on the town? Just power up your internet enabled device and go wild! Online shopping has become a very real threat to physical stores and it’s safer and more convenient than ever before.


Looking for online pokies NZ or the best online sportsbooks? No problem – the variety is almost unbelievable. If there is one thing the internet has in abundance, its ways to entertain yourself and others. From music, movies, series, games, and everything else imaginable, the internet is the greatest source of distraction we’ve ever known.

Staying Connected

Social media has bridged the gap between cultures and countries, nationalities and borders unlike anything we have ever known. If you’re missing a friend who lives thousands of kilometres away, not only can you send them a photo or a message, but you’re able to speak to them over video call as well.


To many people the idea of losing precious family photos, videos, or important documents is their biggest nightmare. Fortunately these worries are now a thing of the past as photos, videos, documents and more can be stored in the ‘cloud’ for easy access no matter where you are in the world.


Keen on learning a new skill or taking up a new hobby? Perhaps you’re interested in improving your qualifications by doing a short course? The internet is a fantastic source of information and has bridged the gap between knowledge and access, making education possible in even the most remote places on earth.

Crowd Funding

While crowd funding is a relatively new concept on a global scale, it has completely taken the world by storm. There are hundreds and thousands of concepts, ideas, and businesses that would be a runaway success if only there were funds to make it happen. Crowd funding has made the dreams of many a reality.
