Ejuggle

Created by: ErWenn

Pronunciation: /ˈiˌdʒʌgḷ/ /EE-Juhg-l/

Sentence: He was an inveterate faultitasker, and he used e-juggle at three portable electronic devices while carrying on polylogues with four different friends. Unfortunately, he can't do this anymore, so he now uses seven devices and has zero friends. In the end, he figured it's all the same, right?

Etymology: from e(lectronic) + juggle
