Middle-aged woman finds out how to open a coconut by looking on the Internet.

That's not a headline you're likely to see. Neither is:

Nor even:

Novice gardener uses Google to find out how to make a Zen garden.

Of course I'm preaching to the converted here, but even one of my students in a beginners' class commented last week that the Internet is seen by headline writers as the source of all evil whereas it's really quite a useful thing.
