This is your iBrain

A colleague at CNET.co.uk who has been living with the iPhone much longer than I have has had very similar experiences, and has found himself whipping out his iPhone to resolve important trivia questions with unnerving frequency. If you have a browser locked and loaded and ready to go in your hand you use it as a kind of small portable iBrain, supporting your arguments, checking your facts, establishing the name of the fifth Beatle, confirming the start time of the film you’re going to see. It’s just part of your personal performance, like looking at your watch or using your Oyster card: personal, ubiquitous, unremarkable. It just works.
