5 Creepy Ways Video Games Are Trying to Get You Addicted, which reminded me of last summer's Slate article, Seeking: How the brain hard-wires us to love Google, Twitter, and texting. And why that's dangerous.

Which I now have to go to, having finished the lengthy process of de-clinging SteelyKid from me at daycare and eaten my breakfast.)
