III. Read the dialogue “Web Talk” in pairs.

Sam: Hey Kira, how’s it going?

Kira: Busy! Yourself?

Sam: Not so bad. Have you checked your email lately?

Kira: No. Why?

Sam: I emailed you a page from Amazon.com. I was ordering a book on-line on business correspondence and they had a link to some other business books. I know you have been looking for something on charts and graphs, and I came across a few titles, so I emailed them to you.

Kira: Thanks a lot. I’ll check it out.

Sam: You know, I should be working, but it’s so easy to get carried away on the Web, I spend more time than on my work! Every morning, I check out the news, the weather report, new movies in town, and go to my favourite news groups. By then I need a coffee break.

Kira: Which usenet groups do you like?

Sam: I like to keep up with computer technology so I go to the Mac and IBM PC groups. But I also explore other cities-everything from UFOs to alternative medicine. It’s an education, but sometimes the time just flies and I get really behind in my work.

Kira: You know, I hardly have time to check my email much less surf the Net. My job is killing me!

Sam: The newspaper of the future will be beamed from our computer onto reusable electronic paper-I saw a television program on it. It’s incredible! I guess we’ll have to throw out our computers and buy new ones.

Kira: That doesn’t surprise me at all. I’ve been doing that every two years anyway!
