She is looking at our "home" page.

Note how tiny the keyboard is. The keyboard is wireless. I never sit at a desk. I lay on the sofa, with a breakfast-in-bed tray on my lap, with the keyboard on it.
Lots of people use their coffee tables. Many sit in recliner chairs. We have a reputation of being internet "couch potatoes."

It also has a remote control "wand." With it, one can type on a virtual, on-screen "keyboard," but it's a real PAIN!

The appliance is that black box, to your left of the television.

That model is a "plus" unit. It can record from your VCR. You can watch tv in a small picture inside the larger picture of the internet. It can remind you when your favorite programs are coming on, and even change channels. You can make video captures with a vid. camera with it and .wav file sound recordings to send in email.

Mine is a "classic" model. It's about 1/2 the size of the one pictured there. It allows internet access only.

You plug either into the: phone, electric outlet and television.

You can take it on vacations easily; it will hunt a local access number, once you tell it you've "moved."

It costs about 2-5 bags of groceries per month, for all you international types. Or 1/17th of my monthly rent.

I can do almost anything online a computer can do. I cannot up- nor download software. The software programs are stored on the network.
This means, my account is very secure: it can't be hacked and I can't catch viruses. I did catch the "SoBig" worm, though.

But that does mean I'm at the whim of the network for software upgrades, which are too often "buggy" for awhile.

You can be online 10 minutes after you get it out of the box. It has an onscreen tutorial.

You use any television as the monitor.

I love this stupid thing!
