A computer allows as to create documents, edit, print, and store them so that they can be recovered later. Furthermore, there are tools like spelling and grammar checker, thesaurus and dictionary, installed in the computer.

Secondly, one can remain connected to the world through the Internet. For example, the World Wide Web (WWW) or simply web is a huge resource of information that can be accessed via the Internet. To mention other resources, E-mail is a method of communication used globally, between friends, colleagues, business partners, and so on.
