They had a story on Morning Edition this morning about a woman named AJ who has a total recall of all the days of her life. I'm surprised they didn't mention Borges' story "Funes el memorioso." This has been imagined in literature before it occured in life.

I heard that story on NPR and was thinking the same thing. (I had just been reading Borges' Collected Ficcions.)
Again, I think he was being prescient with "Funes the Memorious." Also, I think his story "The Book of Sand" presages the internet, with its "infinite pages," and unable to ever open it to exactly the same page twice.
