Why is the Internet useful?

Why is the Internet useful? This question has been asked of me a few different ways recently by people who have never accessed the Internet directly and do not own smartphones capable of accessing the Internet. The individuals asking these questions still get their news from evening TV or the morning paper. They get their notices from companies via the postal service. And they communicate to loved ones via a wired phone in their home or a basic mobile phone which is not used for Text or Voice Mail. These are some smart people that have chosen this lifestyle and have not seen a reason to change.
