3 internet sites to take to a deserted island

After talking to someone who recently published a book about an engineer that is stranded on a deserted island, I started thinking about life in a deserted island with a computer and 3 websites to choose from. I know it's a silly thought, but what are the 3 most influencing websites that I would choose?

How about this list:
Pandora, streaming personalized music so I don't get bored
Gmail, so I can communicate with the world
Google, for finding information

Is that really what I need?
Shouldn't I choose a site that will provide me with reading material or useful information? Maybe a gaming site that can amuse me. It's a tough choice to make.

What are your 3 sites?

How exactly would Google be of any use? You only have three sites.. So being able to search for other sites is pointless, unless you count Googles Cache as Google.

It's a good point you raise.
I didn't think of google's cache but of only the preview data that is shown in the search result page. But google's cache will be a great cheat for this question :)

Wikipedia for reading
CNN for news
Flickr/YouTube/Pandora to pass the time?

Tough indeed

Just one site

Well, I'd want survival info, weather, and communication. So, I'd say google to cover survival, weather would be dependant on location of the island, and gmail sounds good to me - except I can't get an account without sms...
