I view this as a major benefit. If we can rely on accessing information via the internet we can free up portions of our brain and memory to ponder greater, larger, more complex issues. I also believe in the power of recall. Using the internet as a trusted source of information I often know exactly where to look to recall the specifics of something in particular. My brain has more-or-less become a roadmap for where to look for a particular piece of knowledge. I may not remember the specifics of the item, but I remember the item and where to go for the specifics. As a result, I feel my memory has adapted to function with the internet.
