Skip the online dating — get a CloudGirlfriend?

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?
