50个免费实用的网站

Do you ever wonder where we got our information before the Internet?

 

互联网出现之前,人们是如何获得所需要的信息呢?

Did we actually use calculators to convert a liter to a gallon or a dollar to a pound? If we wanted to view a map of Europe, did we really have to visit a library? If we wanted to know what time it was in Melbourne right now  — did we have to call a relative in Australia to find out?

 

人们总是使用计算器才能够把升转换为加仑或者把美元转换为英镑?人们总是到图书馆才能够查阅欧洲地图?人们总是打电话给澳大利亚的亲戚才能够知道墨尔本的时间?事情是那样的吗?

I could go on and on — but the point is that today, the Internet is an amazing free resource for the information we seek.

 

类似事例不胜枚举。本文要说的是,在当今,互联网是个巨大的免费资源库,可以让人们容易地获得所需要的信息。

Below are 50 free and useful websites that are available to all of us in the blink of an eye:
