Virtually Pathetic

Hmm, it seems to me that the people who would be interested in something like this:

    She needs to be coddled with sweet talk and pampered with gifts, but you’ll never see her in the flesh. A Hong Kong company has developed a “virtual girlfriend” for new cell phones with video capability.

    Artificial Life Inc.’s electronic love interest — sort of a Tamagotchi for adults — will appear as an animated figure on a telephone screen and respond by voice to text messages you send.

    But she’ll require a lot of attention, involving virtual flowers and diamonds, company spokeswoman Ada Fong said. Though gifts are nothing but data, suitors will have to pay cold, hard cash.

    ….If she’s neglected, “she’ll be unhappy and she won’t talk to you,” Fong added [AP]

are vastly more pathetic than the people who go for something like this, which at least involves actual flesh and relatively little abuse.

People are really going to spend real, actual money to pamper some dots on their telephone? There are actual women who will accept presents from you and GIVE YOU things in return – is Fong aware of this? I mean, what the fruit?

More on the Pseudo Slut here.
