Other assistants give answers to a single question without answering follow up questions. Google assistant has the ability to hold a conversation. You can ask about specific searches or questions and get answers. Google assistant has the ability to store questions if you are offline, until you can access the Internet. Other online assistants do not have this ability. They work only if you are online. Google assistant also requires the Internet to function.

In addition, the Web has added new items to the pantheon of collectibles, including digital bits that, whether considered virtual or material, are nevertheless collectible. In this work, essays discuss the age-old habit of collecting and its modern relationship with the Internet. Topics include individually authored websites, online auctions, watches, eyewear, Kelly dolls, the gambler’s rush of online acquisition, mp3s, collecting friends via online social networking sites, and online museums, among others.
