because people speak English
It's now more than 10 years since personal computers have opened their ways into our homes, but the addition of internet to it about 5 years or so ago, has changed its roll and presence with us.
Computers now are more than just a piece of hardware in our homes; they are our companions in our daily activities. The first thing that we do every morning after getting out of the bed, is taking a quick look at some of our email accounts, checking Facebook or other social networking Web sites, checking local weather, exchange rates, latest news, listening to a song or even peeking to a clip on YouTube. The number of things that we may want to do with our home computer have become numerous.
We spent a lot of our time to personalize our computers too. Get it from personalizing the desktop themes to buying and installing different applications and software that we like. We have a lot of bookmarks of the Web sites that we like and refer to on a daily basis. Gone are the days of free software, nowadays we invest a lot of money on buying our favorite programs and keep track of new applications that might make our experience with our home computer a more enjoyable one. It is much more than a piece of equipment, it has a sole of its own now that connects with us. We may have affections with our home computer too, we may love it and may not be able to spend a day without it. It is like a family member, much more than when a pet would become a family member. We may not be able to spend a day without it.
Have you imagined the day that you wake up in the morning and go to your computer and turn it on but find that its dead and wouldn't turn on? No lights, no screens, nothing. It's gone. And a butterfly starts tickling in your stomach. ....Hey come on, turn on please... I have lots of things to do with you... What's the matter with you?... Is it a joke?... but it wouldn't listen... And a deep feeling of sorrow and sadness develops in you. ...What can I do now? ...What happens to my everything that I have on you? ...and that's the time that we realize how much dependent we have become to our home computers.
We have lost a family member at that time, and we will always remember that day, the day that our computer died.
