Article on the Internet and Memory

This isn't exactly a new topic, but I came across this article in the Daily Mail: Google Boggling Our Brains? Study Says Humans Use Internet as Their Main "Memory".

The graphic included provides a good summary.  Do the pros outweigh the cons or vice versa?

I'm curious how many of you have experienced this. How many of you prefer to do a quick Google search instead of remembering some fact? (This gives new meaning to Google's cloud storage GDrive.) Do you prefer to be connected all the time, or do you like some offline time? What would you do if your Internet connection(s) was down indefinitely? Leave a comment with your thoughts.
