Other popular activities in the book include email and using a search engine. Along with various ways to perform Instant Messaging and SMS. The very popular Skype (now part of eBay!) lets you have cheap long distance phone calls. Getting music from a peer-to-peer service is another common activity that you might need advice on.
The book also warns about various perils. Like scams in email, often in the form of phishing. You are also cautioned to beware of attachments in messages from strangers. The attachments might be viruses looking for a home on your machine. So regularly updating a virus checker is a good thing.
All around, a handy guide.
