For my scientific work the internet and a computer are time savers.  
They spare me trips to the library, let me find articles almost  
instantly which I never would have dreamt of to lay my hands on in  
the old days, and the pdf files on my hard disks are always present  
and easy to find thanks to BibDesk. In the old days I used to search  
for hours for a misplaced hard copy of an article, nowadays I simply  
print a second copy.

Not to mention email.

Of course the internet and the computer are only tools. One has still  
to use one's brain.
