Does technology make you dumb?

An article in the NY Times recently discussed whether or not technology is dumbing down its users. The article specifically discusses how the proliferation of cell phones has prevented people from memorizing any phone numbers anymore. I only know 2 phone numbers from memory, and those are phone numbers that I've called probably around a few hundred times. How many phone numbers do you still know by memory? I'm guessing not many.
