Internet friend or foe?
I am on my computer more now then I have every been since I stopped my computer work many many years ago. Some parts of it I enjoy such as this blog but most of the time it really frustrates me. I find that when I am looking for something very specific I have an extremely hard time finding it easily or otherwise. Usually after hours of searching, I simply give up. I have found somethings at home Sense that seem to be a good buy but I try to research to see what these items would be if bought in the real world. One was an original painting by a Canadian artist and the other is a mosaic patio set which I have been back to look at 4 times now. I have pictures that I have taken with my cell phone and I have the web sites and names of the manufacturers which I have written down at the store. After house of endless searching I have come up empty handed. I can find the manufacturer and am informed about the product but no where can I find a price for anything even remotely close to what I am looking for. Why can't I just punch in the information that I am looking for and actually get a quick answer?
