Hmm, I'm not so convinced this would be "worse for our brains" or whatever. People deal with a ton more information now, it wouldn't surprise me if people were deliberately dumping half of it and still remembering more stuff than someone in 1990.

Due to the volume of information it's more important to know what needs to be remembered. The testing was with trivia, would they have found the same results with important information relating to a task at work?

Also, "how many countries have flags with only one color?" In a pub quiz this might be a somewhat enjoyable activity with a small group of friends working it out from memory, where points might be given just for a good/close answer. On a computer, people tend to assume it wants an exact correct answer therefore it is something to look up.
