“Multitasking, a definition: ‘The attempt by human beings to operate like computers, often done with the assistance of computers’ “.

Most of the reports I have read about multi-tasking recently focus on asserting that it is something that women are more likely to be good at than men. This article  in the Atlantic is a rant against multi-tasking in any form. It is a highly personal account by Walter Kirn of his own struggles with it, backed by interesting quotations and scientific facts.
