Humans seek for easy ways to avoid fatigue, sorrow, and sadness. Drinking alcohol is one of the approaches to avoid life issues. However, when drinking alcohol too much, the brain changes in such a way that one can’t live without drinking which is a medical disease called alcoholism. Likewise, surfing the internet and skimming through web pages are simple approaches to get information. People tend to use Google for communication, answering questions, translating, playing … etc. What people don’t realize when using the internet is that they become addicted to easy ways to get information. The brain is affected with jumping from one page to another. In the article “Is Google Making Us Stupid?”, Carr declared that the internet change the way people think (Carr 500). He also wrote that the internet reduces a person 's ability of concentration and deep thinking (501). Spending little time to gain information reduces the ability of concentration and focus, which is causing deep thinking to become harder.
Using Google reduces the ability to memorize facts. According to Columbia University 's Department of Psychology study into the effects of the internet search engines, people who rely on the internet to get information are less likely to remember information. “Easy come, easy go” is true mostly in all
