However it was the app's press release that put a weird spin on its debut. "There are endless possibilities for what you and your new virtual friend, Alexandria, can do together," the company stated. "Alexandria loves you, she is eager to please, and she will grow with your iPad. Before you know it, Alexandria will be your virtual best friend."
What's special about this app? It's an aggregator like there are thousands already out there, most of them free and better than this one. The only thing that's special about this one is that it comes disguised as a cute girl.
A pathetic aggregator, teenage style. Nothing to see here, move along folks.
kinda cool. it'd be intresting to see this used for people in lone sitiuations, such as space station life, or researchers in antartica/deep in the jungle studying animal behavior. sometimes these people have difficult times going back into normal social behavior, i'd imagine this might help a bti if it works well enough or at least programs like this... though i think the primary use of this will just lead to alienating people who really do have problems socialising as it is..
but the possibility of HAL but nice is kinda cool an interactive house program with a programmed personality would be neat
