When you search the internet for information, would you rather whip out your wallet and get your hands on what you're looking for quickly, or spend time searching around for a 'free' answer?
After all Time = Money.

It depends both on the value of the answer to me and which I have more of at the time. Also, it depends if it's an answer I need quickly or not. For immediate answers I'd be willing to trade cash. For ones that have value beyond the answer then my time is a more likely investment.

Searching the internet is a skill. When you use your skills to search the internet, you are both saving your time, which means you don't have to spend any money. I have a lot of free time on my hands, so I would always be willing to search online with search engines to give me all the answers I need. Youtube is another great way to get full information on a subject I might want to learn about. The best videos are the ones that are long, and very informative. In fact, I discovered lockergnome from a long 1 H and 30 M video Chris did on Mac vs PC. Most of the videos online were quick 5 minute videos, all saying the same thing. I knew that with a video that is over an hour long, that I will be getting straight answers, and I saved a lot of time just by watching a long video to know what computer will best suit me.
Searching is a skill, use that skill, you will save time, and you don't have to spend money.
