Mensagem:  1- Computers are used for getting all kinds of information and advice. 2- Computers are used for taking all kinds of information and advice. 3- Computers are used for giving all kinds of information and advice. In case they are all correct which one is best? I would say that grammatically all 3 are correct. I don't like 2. because a PC doesn't 'take'( tirar). I think 1. is the best but personally I'd prefer: People use computers to get all kind of information and advice. ( kind doesn't necessarily need an 's') Be good.
