The computer develops into a universal work and leisure time tool. It allows to process and play back multimedia content and access archives from around the world via the Internet.

Digitalisation permeates the media landscape. Due to the use of the computer on such a massive scale and the availability of numerous peripherals such as printer, camera, scanner, microphone as well as the respective software, the computer slowly turns into a universal work and entertainment machine. With the help of the computer, text, sound, image and film documents can be created, which can easily be edited, saved or copied. As they are based on the same digital foundation, the various media types can also be arranged in a multimedia-based way. While printed documents are limited to text and images, digital documents can also integrate film and sound elements. If connected to the Internet, digital documents can also be called up at anytime from anywhere and forwarded to any mail address. Finally, the connection of laptops with cell phones opens up the possibility of using the Internet wirelessly and independent of location.
