Easy to read = Difficult to Remember

I found this blurb on Engaget very interesting:

http://www.engadget.com/2011/01/17/princeton-study-shows-that-easy-fonts-make-things-harder-to-reme/

"...[a Princeton study] has shown that readers retain information more reliably when they are challenged with so-called "disfluent" fonts..."
