I doubt it. People end up at Amazon and Wikipedia often but I don't think it's because they go directly to those sites and then browse around. Much more often they will be looking for something else... if they are looking to buy something, then it's likely that a link to Amazon will be at the top of their search results. If they are looking for general information on something, it's likely that a Wikipedia page would be at the top of the search results list. In either case, the person searching would type in something else other than the names of those sites, and then click through a link to get there.

Knowing about things means that you are self-centered? The first link on the network that would grow to become the Internet was between Stanford and UCLA. If there is no point in history when you had to be in the US to access the Internet, please tell me which one of these campuses exists outside of the USA.

Anyway this happened in the 1960s. The first extra-American connections to the Internet were when University College, London and the Royal Radar Establishment of Norway connected to the ARPANET, both in 1973. By this time many American military and research institutions were already connected to the Internet.

The first commercial Internet Service Provider to provide Internet access to the general public was Telenet, which began offering services to American cities in 1974.
USENET was developed at Duke and UNC Chapel Hill in 1979, and connected to ARPANET (the Internet) via UC Berkeley in 1980.
DNS was established at SRI (in Stanford) and the University of Southern California in 1983. This is why American websites end in .com instead of .co.uk or .co.cn or .co.fr. This should be a clue for you about where the Internet began. It's the same reason why British postage stamps don't have the name of the issuing country on them; because the British invented postage stamps.

Symbolics.com, in Massachusetts, became the first website in 1985.
world.std.com, from Boston, became the first provider of dial-up Internet service in 1989.
In 1991 CERN introduced the World Wide Web and connects this to the Internet. This was a fairly important development from outside the USA.... but this happened over 20 years after the Internet was in the US, and by this time many ordinary Americans were already accessing and using the Internet daily through BBS, USENET, on American college campuses, or through dial-up modems in their homes using services like The World, Prodigy, Compuserv, and America OnLine.
The first connection to the Internet backbone in the UK didn't come until 1991. The first dial-up Internet service in the UK was Pippex which was first offered in 1992.
By 1992 my friends and I had been dialing in to the Internet for years. I'm sorry if these facts hurt your ego somehow.

I'm a Republican, and I cannot stand to watch Fox News. It is a combination of the over-production, the too-high skirts on numerous lookalike bleach blondes, and a generally apologetic attitude toward Republicans who behave poorly. I just cannot watch it. I watch CNN or MSNBC, and I wind up yelling at the television half the time. For me, that is better than Fox News.

and yes, gotta agree with pkerr... the channel is absolute garbage now. Just nonstop pandering and propaganda. You can't get any actual information from them. It's just fluff and misdirection. Constantly. It's worse than Russia Today.

I don't agree with everything I see on MSNBC, CNN, the BBC, or AlJazeera- sometimes they will start going off on a tangent that pisses me off and I change the channel- but at least I can count on them to give me some news and some relevant information.

I used to watch Fox back around 1999-2001 or so. It wasn't nearly as bad back then.

Also.. "Republicans have a news channel?" If you admit openly that the "news" channel is wholly owned by one party that means I'm right. It's not news. It's party or state propaganda.

Not even close to the same way. The Washington Post is nearly 150 years old, and isn't explicitly biased in every aspect of it's reporting, while Breitbart was founded just over 10 years ago with a specific intent for conservative bias. I'll give you the "same way" that Huffington Post is on here, though, since Steve Bannon himself said "We are going to be the Huffington Post of the right"

@CorkSpork Washington Post USED to be incredibly reputable journal delivering world class news. However, all it takes is new management to completely destroy the good reputation that the organization has worked so hard to achieve.

Jeff Bezos has a $500M contract with the CIA. That's an enormous conflict of interest; it's not a coincidence that Washington Post is non-stop beating the drum for war. When a gas attack occurred in Syria last year, within a few hours Washington Post published over 10 articles with the intent to manufacture consent from the public for war. They vilified Assad even before anybody knew who used the gas.

Washington Post threw true fact-based journalism out the window during the election season when they instead decided to spew militant far-left and pro-military industrial complex propaganda. All prestige that this newspaper once had has been completely wiped away.

At least Breitbart is upfront about its intentions.

As an "average" American this is pretty much spot on. I go on Amazon a few times daily and Wikipedia. Weather. Com as well. I'm a little over FB but most people aren't and when I search for a news story dailymail is usually one of the top results as Id Washingpost and Huffington. Imdb.com a few times a day I've probably only ever been on BBC Looking for Dr Who info. Never been to Fox news 😬 but most of the rest is on point. I was actually surprised Buzzfeed wasn't on here.

No idea what direction to think of for productivity, portal and computing. And for aggregator I could only think think of the thing that you have for back up power, a sort of generator. But that might be a language barrier. I guessed yahoo, but I typed it figuring it might be on there as a searchengine. I got weather to as a complete guess, guessing t for weather :DAlso got the low wikia and missed imdb cause I typed imbd (I think I might do that more often in google, but it directs me to the right place, so I have the wrong letters in my musclememory)

This is where app(lication)s cheat the line. People using installed programs are doing no different than visiting a website, except they allowed the website to install a program on their phone to clog memory and keep track of them. A little internet shortcut is such a simpler, cleaner file to store on your desktop.
