CAUGHT IN THE WEB - A new study shows most people believe the internet will make them smarter in the next ten years, but some argue the internet will actually lower people's I.Q.s if they use the internet often.

- Fewer colleges are printing yearbooks as students sharing memories on Facebook show less interest in having a hardcover memento.

The University of Virginia in Charlottesville is the latest school to stop publishing a yearbook, joining schools such as Purdue, Mississippi State and Old Dominion.

Schools are dropping their yearbooks as students are focused more on technology and more inclined to use social-networking web sites.

technology is taken everything away from everyone, the pictures and writings in a yearbook, will last forever but if computers crash or something you have lost everything if you dont have it backed up. and it is too impersonal.
