Middle

Whereas nowadays if I am out and need a lift all I have to do is reach into my pocket and ring my parents. If I do not have my MP3 player with me and I want to listen to my music then all I have to do is reach into my pocket and listen to it via my phone. This is a recent addition to my phone technology, if a year or two ago I had gone out and not brought my MP3 player with me, there would not be a personal choice of music available for me. Me And My DVD Player My DVD Player's features My DVD Player's official name is "Wharfedale WMTS-6801 DVD 5.1 Micro System". DVD stands for Digital Versatile Disk.

Conclusion

The whole package is extremely easy to use and as I use them all a lot this comes in handy. The auto-spell correct feature on Microsoft Word is brilliant and is something I use all the time, it saves me from looking up words in the dictionary all of the time. I use the Outlook Express programme (email) to send work home or receive work from home. Whereas before, I would have to pop home and save my work to a floppy disk (unreliable) and take it in to school. Another good point is the broadband connection to the internet. I also use this, a lot. There are two internet browsers on the computer (Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox). I use Mozilla Firefox rather than Microsoft Internet Explorer. I find it easier to use and as it has site tabs at the top of the screen I can use it more efficiently. The internet has its problems though, as it takes a long time to load up some internet pages. I use the internet to do research on things when I am doing my work, before the internet I would have had to go to the school library and spend several tedious hours looking up information in big books and encyclopaedia. A major disadvantage the computer has is its speed in opening and closing programmes. Sometimes It can take up to five minutes to open a programme where as it should just open straight away. This is pretty useless as it delays me doing my work or it sometimes even crashes and loses my work. Overall the computer is extremely straightforward to use and easy to save and find my work with. ...read more.
