Another example of how the internet and modern technology is taking over our lives. Smash Hits magazine, (a popular English teen magazine), filled with pop posters, song lyrics and interviews with the latest chart-toppers is to cease publication after many years. I used to buy this magazine myself (in my youth!), as did my schoolfriends. It seems that with the advent of computers, the youngsters of today prefer to surf the internet for details of their favourite bands and so sales of the magazine plummeted, leading to its closure and the sad end of an era.
