In conclusion it will compare the reasons that are aired by the writer in the article and compare them with what has been written by other writers on the Importance of Google on the readers and how it has improved the intellectual capacity of the people using it.
The First study
“Is Google Making Us Stupid?” by Nicholas G. Carr
The importance of the Nicholas paper is to provide the reader with the knowledge about the Google and at the same time ensure that the reader is drained into believing that the introduction of Google has resulted to making the individuals become stupid. It points out that using it makes more stupid as compared to the past when the individuals were subjected to a lot of reading as the only source of getting information (Carr, par 3).

The author used a sample in helping him support his idea that Google is making us to become stupid; in the article the different blogs and internet articles from different writers have been identified. This tricks the reader to believe that Google is bad and affects the normal thinking of the while undertaking the studies on the internet. The articled highlights on the different ways how Google makes us stupid; for instance, he gives the experience of Bruce Friedman, who is a frequent Blogger. This is when he talks about the use of computers in medicine, in the article Freidman highlights on how the internet has altered the way in which he conducts his research on the internet. He continues to elaborate that, from the conversation that he had with the author that he doesn’t go through the whole articles. For this reason Freidman doesn’t have to read the whole article but only goes through the first paragraphs and from the different readings the individual will be in a position of getting a clue of what is being addressed in the given topic (Carr, par 5).
Another article by Maryanne Wolf in her article “Proust and the Squid: The Story and Science of the Reading Brain” is when she boldly indicates that we are how we read. The author uses this notion to give a clear indication that the internet is the main cause that has affected the way we read; this is when the writer indicated that the internet has resulted to the reading concentration and deep thinking. Consequently, this has resulted the readers to just skimming through the paper as the reader will loose his/ her concentration and deep reading. This according to the author reduces the levels of deep reading as a result of lack of concentration thus making the individuals to absorb little from the internet articles (Carr, par 3).
“The Importance of Google PageRank: A Guide for Small Business Executives” by Dharmesh Shah
The article has stated that Google is well known as the best search engine in the world; this is because it provides the internet users with the most effective information that will ensure all the reader from different locations of the world to access information.

Google has also broadened the minds of the readers as opposed to the article by Nicholas article known as “Is Google Making Us Stupid?” This is when Google is seen as the most important search engine that provide its readers with the adequate information that will ensure that the reader is free to access different sites. At the same time without the need of the individual to go through the books physically in the library or any other source.
The article has also stated that Google has resulted to an improved IQ of an individual this is because it has provided the reader with different articles inform of advertisement, journals, books and educational articles that the reader will use to compare the different ideas of the authors. This makes the individual have varied information that will ensure that they will use to verify their knowledge and in the process help them expand their minds (Shah, par 2).
According from the two different articles I have studied above it is clear to indicate that Google is playing a very important role in our lives and as time goes by different inventions that are being discovered. It is noted that these inventions are aimed at ensuring that Google is the most efficient service provider that is easy and user friendly to use (Shah, par 4). The search engines of Google are well placed in order to ensure that the users can easily access any kind of information from different sites. At the same time, this will eventually make an individual to be more enlightened as a result of having access to different and much information that they will compare and contrast thus ensuring that the individual is more brilliant.
