Are Foogle the enemy?

One of my favourite TV shows growing up was Pinky and the Brain (you're humming that tune, now aren't you?). The best part of every episode was when Pinky would ask: "Gee, Brain, what do you want to do tonight?" and Brain would reply: "The same thing we do every night, Pinky - try to take over the world!"

Many believe this has caused the average user's attention to fragment between devices.
