"In the current battle with Froogle, Google has the full right to challenge as the spelling of frugal was changed to appear like Google's."
I agree with the general theme of the article, but just on a point of order...GOOGLE actually OWNS (and develops) FROOGLE.
In short, Google INTENTIONALLY created the name Froogle to resemble their core brand name closely to ensure future brand recognition when they position Froogle as a proper comparison shopping web site (or tool).

Is "too much screen time" really a problem?
Yes -- smartphone addiction is ruining relationships.
Yes -- but primarily due to parents' failure to regulate kids' use.
Possibly -- long-term effects on health are not yet known.
Not really -- lack of self-discipline and good judgement are the problems.
No -- angst over "screen time" is just the latest overreaction to technology.
No -- what matters is the quality of content, not the time spent viewing it.
