Right. This is one of the features introduced in Mathematica by
version 6. Among other things, by default, Mathematica accesses
Wolfram's servers to update the online documentation or to
access curated data used by some of the built-in functions. See
the discussion that can be found by searching on


in the documentation center for more details. If you don't care
to have Mathematica connect to the internet, this can be
disabled in Mathematica's preferences. Of course, this will mean
certain functionality of Mathematica will not be available to you.
