Eliz: Welcome once again to “Culture Tips” with Gary Engleton.

Today, our e-mail question is “Why are Americans in business so crazy about the Internet?”

Gary: Well, I would say that there are two main reasons.

First, people use the Internet to send e-mail.

Using e-mail is much cheaper and more convenient than regular mail.

Eliz: Right! You don’t have to print a letter, put it into an envelope, and mail it.

Gary: And you don’t have to pay for postage.

So you save time and money.

Eliz: What’s the second reason?

Gary: The second reason Americans love the Internet is the amount of information on the World Wide Web.

Websites provide the newest information about business products and services.

That’s why more and more people go to company websites for information.

It’s easier than trying to find a trade journal with the same information.

Eliz: It sounds as if companies can work more cheaply and quickly by using the Internet!

Gary: That’s it exactly!

Eliz: Thanks for your information, Gary.
