This final note today. Bob Moon told us about getting your music from the cloud in that Amazon story earlier. Which gets us to this:

There's a company out there called CloudGirlfriend. Using the tag line, "The best way to get a girlfriend is to already have one," the company says it'll create a virtual female friend to write sweet nothings on your Facebook wall.

Two thoughts: 1) Eww, and 2) Please -- somebody's gonna pay for this?

“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.” – Michael in Arlington, VA

As a nonprofit news organization, what matters to us is the same thing that matters to you: being a source for trustworthy, independent news that makes people smarter about business and the economy. So if Marketplace has helped you understand the economy better, make more informed financial decisions or just encouraged you to think differently, we’re asking you to give a little something back.

Become a Marketplace Investor today – in whatever amount is right for you – and keep public service journalism strong. We’re grateful for your support.
