Myth: The world wide web and the Internet are the same thing.

Truth:They aren’t the same thing. The Internet is the infrastructure that allows information to be shared between networks across the world, including ones accessed via personal computers, smartphones, various kinds of software and more. The web is just another one of those networks, namely the one with sites and pages that start with www. Hey, just like the one you’re on right now! Look at that!

The web needs the Internet to exist, but the Internet has plenty of other stuff going on besides the web.

Myth:You can’t take good photos unless your camera has a lot of megapixels.

Truth: Despite being one of the most commonly held beliefs about digital photography, a photo’s quality is determined by many more factors than megapixels. As The New York Times explains, “a camera’s lens, circuitry and sensor — not to mention your mastery of lighting, composition and the camera’s controls — are far more important factors.”
